Using Evidence to Guide Nursing Practice 2e is an invaluable ‘how-to’ guide for students and experienced nurses alike. Emphasis is placed on how to develop an evidence-based culture in the workplace, support clinicians to make decisions using the best available evidence and translating this evidence into practice. This new edition is divided into five concise sections which guide readers from an examination of evidence, to developing a workplace culture that supports Evidence-Based Practice. It demonstrates how to locate and appraise evidence, how to evaluate practice and finally how to translate evidence into practice with a new applied case study included.

  • includes two new chapters; ‘Locating and appraising the evidence’ and ‘ Evidence to inform nursing practice: An applied approach’
  • highlights Evidence-based Practice (EBP) initiatives and demonstrates how to develop an evidence-based culture in the workplace
  • includes Step-by-step guides to undertaking a systematic review, a clinical audit and a program evaluation
  • each chapter will have contributions from experienced academics and clinicians across Australia so as to ensure health industry relevance and academic rigour are addressed
