Overview

Do your students ever struggle to grasp what exactly constitutes evidence or struggle to see how it applies to practice?

Would you like them to feel more confident about critiquing evidence?

The need for an evidence base for nursing practice is widely accepted. However, what constitutes evidence and how nurses might apply it to practice is not always clear. This book guides nursing students through the process of identifying, appraising and applying evidence in nursing practice. It explores a wide range differing sources of evidence and knowledge, and helps students to develop key skills of critiquing research and using evidence in clinical decision making.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Previous Edition

'This book is an excellent text for students at all stages of their course, either for introducing or developing their understanding of Evidence-based practice. It is easy to read and identifies resources for the readers to access' -

Karen Hayward, University Campus Suffolk

'An excellent text, I have recommended it to the students who are undertaking my Evidence Based Health Care & Research Module. Thank you' -
Lisa Whiting, University of Hertfordshire

'An excellent introductory text for those students moving on from understanding research methods, to critiquing and evaluating the evidence. A great companion volume to Ellis' Understanding Research for Nursing Students' -

Anji Waring, University of Plymouth

'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 

Caroline E Gibson
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.
Liz Lees
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.
Fiona Davies
The set of books is an excellent resource for students. The series is small, easily portable and and valuable. I use the whole set on a regular basis.
