Summary, etc.:
"What is evidence-based nursing? Simply, it is the application of valid, relevant, and research-based information in nurse decision-making. Used effectively, evidence-based nursing methods can be used to dramatically enhance patient care and improve outcomes." "Evidence-based Nursing: An introduction is a practical guide to evidence-based nursing for students and practitioners. Proceeding step-by-step, it enables nurses to understand and evaluate the different types of evidence that are available, and to critically appraise the studies that lie behind them. It also considers the ways in which these findings can be implemented in clinical practice, and how research can be practically applied to clinical decision-making."--Back cover.
