In order to succeed as professional nurses, students need to know how clinical knowledge is produced and how to use this knowledge in everyday practice. Evidence-Based Nursing: The Research–Practice Connection, Fourth Edition by Sarah Jo Brown introduces students to research methods and evidence-based practice.
What's more, it helps students understand research methods, how to appraise and use research evidence in clinical decision-making, and how to understand and engage in evidence-based practice more fully. By linking evidence-based practice to recent research in safety and quality programs, the Fourth Edition also provides timely information in both healthcare and nursing settings.
- Discusses five common research designs, systematic reviews, and clinical practice guidelines
