Evidence-based Practice in Nursing

Fourth Edition

April 2019 | 208 pages | Learning Matters

Do your students feel unsure about what exactly constitutes evidence? Would you like them to feel more confident in evaluating evidence and applying it to their practice?

Delivering safe, high-quality, patient-centred care is dependent upon nurses having a good understanding of evidence-based practice, and how to apply this successfully. However, for many students engaging with this side of practice is a challenge. This book has been specifically designed to help guide students through the process of identifying, evaluating and applying evidence in nursing practice. Using a variety of learning features, this text will help your students to see how the theory applies to their everyday practice and help them develop the skills they need to confidently use evidence in their clinical decision-making.

The clear layout and text helps students to navigate through the terminology of evidence based practice(EBP).
The ability to apply EBP is a lifelong skill which can be used beyond nurse education,in any aspect of a professional nurses career.
