Description:

Evidence-Based Nursing: The Research-Practice Connection, Third Edition is a key resource designed to teach nursing students how to engage in evidence-based practice (EBP). The text provides basic knowledge regarding research methodology and gives readers the confidence they need to appraise published research critically. Evidence-Based Nursing: The Research-Practice Connection, Third Edition is written in a plain and informal style that appeals to both students and educators, and the content is timely as it links EBP to recent work in the Safety and Quality programs that are underway in healthcare and nursing.In the first section of the text, Sarah Jo Brown offers five common research designs, systematic reviews, and clinical practice guidelines by using a consistent, easy-to-read "WHY-HOW-WHAT" approach. An exemplar study report for each type of evidence is followed by a "Profile and Commentary" that points out methodological features and explains results of the study. The second section follows up with information on how to engage in EBP, including how to focus a question for an EBP inquiry, how to locate evidence, and how to appraise the forms of evidence introduced in the first section. This approach to the text is beneficial for readers in that it relies heavily on the use of exemplar research reports, provides a concrete context for learning about abstract research and appraisal concepts, and helps students see how the various components of a study are related to one another.
