Evidence-based Practice in Nursing

PART OF the Transforming Nursing Practice series, this book supports nursing students on the baccalaureate programme. This second edition includes practical examples and a wider variety of case studies to demonstrate how evidence-based approaches can be applied in decision making and nursing practice. In addition, the text briefly discusses the need to apply caution in the sourcing and interpretation of sources, and provides a critiquing framework to guide the reader.

This is a small but action-orientated text that seeks to close the theory-practice gap in two ways. First, it promotes professional practice and lifelong learning by providing the reader with activities and opportunities to reflect on and challenge the use of evidence in nursing practice. The learning and actions arising can be incorporated into their portfolio to evidence progression of practice through engagement with professional development and emergent sources of evidence.

Second, this edition, while limited in its size and scope, encourages the reader to make use of a free companion website to enhance learning. The reader can dip in and out of extra activities and case studies, and engage in recommended reading and weblinks that serve to support professional development and practice.
