Description:This authors and contributors discuss the principles of evidence-based practice (EBP) and the application of EBP in 10 areas of nursing practice.
Purpose:The purpose of this book is to provide readers with basic principles of EBP and demonstrate the application in key areas of health care. These are worthwhile objectives since there is a thrust to have EBP underlie appropriate and effective patient care.
Audience:The target audience is nurse leaders involved with EBP. The contributors are experts in their fields.
Features:This book describes the initiation and application of EBP in the following areas: governance, education, technology, workload management, safety, physical environment of healthcare, magnet processes, policy issues, and utilization of evidence in daily practice. Extensive references are provided for each chapter.
Assessment:This book should provide a starting point for discussion about initiating EBP in various areas of clinical practice. With the impetus of EBP to ensure appropriate and effective patient care in the 21st century, this book should move the process toward fruition.
