The Evidence-based Practice Manual successfully breaks down the skills for evidence-based nursing into manageable components. The reader will learn how to find, critically read and interpret a range of research studies, and will discover optimal approaches to helping patients reach decisions that are informed by the best-available evidence. The more-strategic concepts of developing an organisational evidence-based culture and making evidence-based changes at organisational level are the focus of the final section.

This book describes each individual step of evidence-based practice from forming a question through to putting findings into practice and developing an evaluative culture within the organisation. It deals with each component of the process in sufficient breadth that the novice will understand most of the principles and in enough depth for it to be an aide-memoire and provide guidance to the professional who has already had some training in evidence-based practice. It uses multiple examples relevant to nursing, both within primary and secondary care, to illustrate points. Each chapter deals with specific aspects of the process and these are logically laid out to lead the reader through the process.
