Evidence-based Practice for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals

Fourth Edition


April 2019 | 264 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

In Evidence-based Practice for Nurses and Healthcare, the authors use case studies, examples, and theoretical overviews to guide readers through the concept of evidence-based practice and provides practical guidance on its utilisation in clinical practice.

The new 4th edition has been fully updated to reflect contemporary practice, and includes a new chapter on the ‘History and Development of Clinical Academics,’ which looks at clinical academic careers and the impact and benefits this has for nurses and healthcare professionals on their clinical practice.

Written to support nurses at pre and post-registration, the book includes an interdisciplinary focus covering health and social care curricula.

This publication covers a lot of the topics already considered within evidence based practice. It did not add another dimension for midwifery specific teaching and hence we could not justify adding it to an already busy reading list as a core text. We would recommend for back ground reading.

A well structured book with concepts clearly explained. Very useful.
