9781844453696: Evidence-based Practice in Nursing (Transforming Nursing Practice Series)

The need for an evidence base for nursing practice is widely accepted. However, what evidence is and how nurses might appraise and apply it to their practice is still a matter of some debate, which can leave the novice nurse feeling confused. This book uses clear language to help the reader develop skills in the identification, appraisal and application of evidence for nursing practice. It guides the reader in the development of underpinning skills such as reflection, critical thinking and research, which allow the nurse to make sense of all the different forms of information and evidence that influence 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' -
Marguerita Leyden, University of Salford



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.--Caroline E Gibson (10/03/2013)

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.--Liz Lees
