Changes in health care resulting from the Affordable Care Act, the Institute of Medicine's Future of Nursing report, and other challenges require nurses to embrace and advance their knowledge through evidence based-practice. The recently published Introduction to Nursing Research: Incorporating Evidence-Based Practice, Fourth Edition by Carol Boswell and Sharon Cannon is a distinct integration of evidence-based practice and research. It focuses on how nurses can incorporate research into their daily practice to provide high-quality health care.
The Fourth Edition concentrates on the meaning of evidence, the use of quality improvement, and the practical application of each for practicing nurses. It also provides guidance on how to analyze the strengths and challenges evident in research projects, quality improvement reports, and published reports.

- Fundamental concepts presented using evidence-based research examples
- New chapter on quality
- Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools
