Nursing Resources: Evidence Based Practice
Evidence Based Practice in Nursing
Evidence-Based Medicine is the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. The practice of evidence based medicine means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.
Evidence Based Nursing is an ongoing process by which evidence, nursing theory and the practitioners’ clinical expertise are critically evaluated and considered, in conjunction with patient involvement, to provide delivery of optimum nursing care for the individual.
The following books can help you develop a foundational understanding of evidence-based practice (EBP), in addition to guiding you toward implementing EBP into patient care. To find more books on this topic search for "evidence- based nursing" in the Levy library catalog.
