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.
