The gold standard in health care research is conducting studies that are truly representative of the general population ó and not limited to a narrow range of cultural, gender, geographic, or socioeconomic groups. This book provides a how-to approach to planning, implementing, and conducting such studies. Especially valuable are case examples describing successful research projects that have taken on the "multi" approach.
