Description

Awarded second place in the 2013 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Nursing Education/Continuing Education category

This AJN award-winning text is the only book to teach evidence-based practice (EBP) content grounded in a tested philosophy of teaching and learning. It provides the tools, perspective and context for health educators and practitioners to implement evidence-based care practices and evaluate their efficacy.

Reflecting four years of successful experiences in helping academic agencies understand and implement EBP, this new edition has been reorganized to include updated information and five new chapters. It stresses the importance of mentorship in creating EBP and illustrates how mentorship can be designed and implemented to promote EBP. The text clarifies three principal values:

  • How to integrate EBP into academic curricula
  • How to implement an EBP model in clinical settings (for graduate, second career, and CE students)
  • How to address teaching and learning strategies for specific user groups

    Teaching Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing will be of value to clinical and academic educators, educational and clinical administrators, unit managers, students attending CE programs, and students in nursing education graduate programs.

    Key Features:

    • Revises and expands upon AJN Book of the Year Award first edition
    • Reflects knowledge gained from four years of successful experiences in teaching and learning EBP since publication of first edition
    • Provides comprehensive and innovative strategies for mentoring and teaching EBP in education and practice scenarios
