Equip your students with the fundamentals of EBP and develop their practical skills to help them understand, evaluate, conduct and safely apply research!

Edited by experts Jean Craig and Dawn Dowding, and co-written by authors with extensive clinical and methodological expertise, Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing, 4th edition, provides a straightforward guide to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of research to improve quality of care and health outcomes.

Clearly written and rich with practical examples throughout, this market-leading text begins with foundational content and then explains how to ask the right question, search the literature, evaluate – and safely apply - evidence from qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods studies including systematic reviews. Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing, 4th edition, also explains how to use evidence-based guidelines and use research evidence in making clinical decisions with individual patients. A concluding chapter explores the challenges of embedding an evidence-based culture within a healthcare environment.

Designed not to overwhelm students who are new to the subject area, this market-leading text comes with a helpful array of online learning exercises for the reader together with a Test Bank, Powerpoint Slides and Image collection for instructors.
