The third edition of this award-winning text delivers the full treasury of tools that graduate nursing students and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) need to translate clinical research into practice. In the current health care landscape, APRNs are challenged to provide patient-centered care that is effective, safe, efficient, equitable, and evidence based. Building knowledge and skills in evidence-based practice (EBP) is imperative to successfully meet this challenge and improve patient outcomes.

The text describes essential ways to implement EBP in clinical practice, including how to search for and evaluate various forms of evidence, design questionnaires and data-collection forms, and analyze qualitative and quantitative data. The authors offer guidelines for evaluating research articles and a variety of EBP activities and protocols that show how to integrate EBP into multiple clinical settings suitable for all APRN areas of practice. Step-by-step instruction walks readers through the process of finding relevant evidence, appraising evidence, and translating evidence into practice to improve patient care and outcomes. The authors continue the great work of Magdalena Mateo, who created the earlier editions upon which this revision is based.
