Employers expect new graduates to be well-versed in evidence-based practice--its theory and its implementation. Begin with a concise introduction to evidence-based practice to gain a full perspective of what it is and why it's so important. Then draw upon must-have guidance and tools that will help you immediately apply what you've learned in both classroom and clinical settings. This practical, step-by-step approach develops the critical-thinking and decision-making skills you need to effectively apply and deliver effective patient care.
You'll find separate four sections that consider the context of evidence-based practice, theories and models, ways to find and implement the best sources of evidence, and the application of evidence-based practice to specific nursing specialties.
Perfect for a stand-alone, evidence-based course or for integrating throughout the nursing curriculum.
