About this title


The Evidence-based Practice Manual successfully breaks down the skills for evidence-based nursing into manageable components. The reader will learn how to find, critically read and interpret a range of research studies, and will discover optimal approaches to helping patients reach decisions that are informed by the best-available evidence. The more-strategic concepts of developing an organisational evidence-based culture and making evidence-based changes at organisational level are the focus of the final section.

This book will be invaluable both for students and for qualified nurses who are reviewing their clinical practice, developing guidelines or protocols, undertaking systematic reviews, learning about research or carrying out a literature review to inform research.
