This chapter examines research and nursing for people with intellectual disabilities. This chapter is an introduction to some of the key concepts in nursing research that are most relevant to nursing for people with intellectual disabilities. The major methodological approaches to quantitative and qualitative research are outlined, to help in identifying and evaluating their use in practice. The key stages of the research process are outlined, so that students and practitioners will know what to look for when reading research and with what to start if they want to pursue their own research ideas. Finally, the chapter examines some of the issues that are important to research for nurses for people with intellectual disabilities. These include ethical issues that are fundamental to all research, as well as working collaboratively with people with intellectual disabilities, carers, and children in research.
