Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michalene A. King, PhD, RN, CNE (Duquesne University School of Nursing)
Description: This is the third edition of a book that seeks to make a connection between research and evidence-based practice.
Purpose: No purpose is explicitly stated, but the author notes, "This book is offered to assist nursing students in acquiring the knowledge required to engage in evidence-based practice, which includes basic knowledge about research methods and knowledge about how to incorporate credible research evidence into practice."
Audience: The intended audience is nursing students.
Features: The book is divided into two parts, one on nursing research and the other on evidence-based practice, but the majority of the book discusses research. Although this part uses exemplars to aid understanding, they are not particularly helpful and, in fact, I found them confusing. I expected them to explain the research discussed, but I could not see a connection between the material in the chapter and the exemplars. The chapter on qualitative research addresses only two methods, but contains a table that describes three methods. However, the appendixes and the glossary are extremely informative.
Assessment: This is the first book I've encountered with the stated purpose of showing a connection between research and practice. The research books I've seen have attempted to incorporate some information about evidence-based practice. Because this book has a section on evidence-based practice, it is needed; however, the research section is disappointing.
