Introduction to Nursing Research: Incorporating Evidence-Based Practice, Third Edition by Carol Boswell and Sharon Cannon is now available as a CourseSmart eBook.
- Chapter 2: Overview of Evidence - This new chapter addresses the qualities of evidence, how it is used, the levels of evidence and strength of evidence concepts, and the place evidence holds in management of patient care. It addresses the different ways that evidence should be considered within health care, and provides discussion about the demand from accreditation organizations and Medicare reimbursement departments related to the need for evidence-based practice.
- Chapter 14: Translation Research with Application - Translational research, sometimes referred to as action research, attempts to move research into the practice arena and allow for the most up-to-date management of health issues. This chapter explores this approach, discusses its application to nursing, and is directed toward making research and evidence-based practice even more practical for the nurses at the bedside.
