View all copies of this ISBN edition:

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.

Key Features:

-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.

Peter Ellis is Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing at Canterbury Christ Church University and Programme Director for Health and Social Care Interprofessional Practice.

′An excellent text which will guide the student to understand the importance of evidence in application to nursing practice. The case studies are particularly helpful in demonstrating the link to nursing practice′ -

This text is a useful companion for the students as they develop through the programme. The chapters are supported by useful references and web links for them to further develop their reading. It is very readable and students will be able to dip in and out in relation to their assignment, practice placement or issue of interest. Author: Caroline E Gibson Published On: 2013-10-03

The book deconstructs what is thought of by most as a complex topic, it does so by offering bite sized chunks and provides excellent insights how to apply this in practice...This book is aimed at students on degree courses. It would certainly be of benefit to nurses who perhaps have not undertaken a module or course in evidence based practice, acting as a practical guide to enhance the development of practice.
