The Evidence-Based Practice Manual successfully breaks down the skills required 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 towards 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 the organisational level are addressed in the final chapter. This popular book comes with helpful online exercises including NCLEX questions for the US readership.
