Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bob Green , MSN (East Carolina University )
Description: This informative book represents a comprehensive look at the relationship of research and practice in midwifery with information on how to integrate research into practice. The chapters, although written by various authors, follow a uniform format, allowing for easy reading and cross-referencing.
Purpose: The purpose is to acquaint midwives with the need to link practice and research — evidence based care. This care model is quickly becoming the "standard of care" throughout the world. The editors and contributors not only explore evidence based care in a comprehensive and logical manner, but also introduce the core skills necessary to do midwifery research.
Audience: This book is written for the midwife in practice. The content would however, most certainly be of interest and benefit to all women's healthcare providers.
Features: The text is divided into two main sections. The first and larger section is an exploration of midwifery practice, the use of research, and the shift to evidence based practice in all healthcare fields. In the second section contributors examine the "core skills" needed to begin research in midwifery. All of the chapters are well referenced and have a consistent format, creating a seamlessness that is often missing in books with numerous authors.
Assessment: The editors of this outstanding volume quickly bring in readers. Evidence based practice is becoming the standard by which all practice decisions are being made and judged, by the courts as well as clinicians. This is an outstanding book for all midwives regardless of their practice settings or level of skill.
From the Publisher
"The editors are well known and eminent midwives with strong research backgrounds. They provide a useful introduction to set the scene and justify why we should incorporate evidence based practice." Heather James, Australian College of Midwives, December 2000
