Best Practices in Caring for the Deaf Patient

This guide offers medical professionals information to understand Deaf culture and identify resources (databases, books, web sites, and more) to continue research topics in this subject.



Why Books?

Why should you do research in books?

  • Books provide in-depth coverage of a topic 
  • Books often provide valuable background information on a topic 
  • Books can also provide an overview of all issues pertaining to a topic
  • Books can lead readers to other sources through their bibliographies 

While they may be lengthy, you do not necessarily have to read an entire book for every research paper you have to do.

You can use the index and the chapter titles to narrow down which section of the book is most pertinent to your research.
