The need for an evidence base for nursing practice is widely accepted. However, what constitutes evidence and how you as a nurse might apply it to your practice is not always clear. This book guides you through the process of identifying, appraising and applying evidence in nursing practice. It explores a wide range of differing sources of evidence and knowledge, and helps students to develop key skills of critiquing research and using evidence in clinical decision making.
The second edition includes practical examples of getting evidence and research into practice, the importance of considering multiple perspectives as evidence, new material on systematic reviews and secondary research, new case studies from each field of practice, a clearer colour text design and additional examples and activities on the website for the book.
-Each chapter is linked to relevant NMC Standards and Essential Skills Clusters so you can see what is required in order to become a registered nurse
-Scenarios and case studies show you how evidence-based approaches can be used successfully in your nursing practice
-Activities help you to build confidence inyour evidence-based practice.
