A unique "mentor in a pocket" handbook covering one of the most important trends in nursing today
4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is a wonderful contribution to nursing. It provides nurses with clear usable handbook for incorporating evidence-based nursing into practice. It assists nurses in growing from strictly understanding evidence-based practice to identifying practice issues and formulating a plan for executing the model." -- Doody's
From the co-creator of the Model for Change to Evidence-Based Practice comes the first portable guide to evidence-based practice for direct care nurses in any health care setting.
Part of McGraw-Hill's Nurse to Nurse series, this title includes a PDA download of the entire text, case studies, and explicit step-by-step instructions on how to apply evidence-based practice to your daily routines and patient care. The coated flex-binding repels stains while the slim-design fits easily into your lab coat pocket.
Learn the six steps to evidence-based practice change:
*Assess the need for change in practice
*Locate the best evidence
*Critically analyze the evidence
*Design practice change
*Implement and evaluate change in practice
*Integrate and maintain change in practice
The new Nurse to Nurse series is specifically designed to simulate the teaching experience from which nurses learn best: trusted mentors carefully explaining what they must do in specific clinical situations. Written in a consistent, single-author voice, this series brings the wisdom and experience of some of the foremost experts to non-specialist nurses in clinical care.
