Research does not happen by chance. The approach taken to plan, resource, and implement an investigation will be dependent on:what has gone before, what has still to be done, and what is convenientthe context, the focus of the enquiry, gaps in current knowledge, and the questions asked.a lack of confidence in current knowledge, current research, and current practicegaps in theory knowledge, gaps in practice knowledge, and what the researcher has an interest in

Engaging in research often means challenging how things have always been done. A classical example of this was provided by Ignaz Semmelweiss in 1780. His research changed practice in what way?Prophylactic antibiotics for women in labour would prevent the transmission of syphilis to a fetus.Spreading tea leaves on the floor of tuberculosis wards and having these swept and replaced daily prevented the spread of tuberculosis.Opening windows in hospital wards at night would dispel the miasma (evil smelling air) that caused ill-health.Handwashing by hospital staff could dramatically increase survival rates of patients.
