Reviewing research evidence for nursing practice: systematic reviews enables nurses and researchers to understand the key principles involved in preparing systematic reviews and to critically appraise the reviews they read and evaluate their usefulness in developing their own practice.

Reviewing Research Evidence for Nursing Practice highlights the key issues which arise when conducting different types of systematic reviews, enabling nurses to understand the key principles involved in preparing systematic reviews and to critically appraise the reviews they read and evaluate their usefulness in developing their own practice.

The book includes a selection of systematic reviews carried out in a range of specialist areas related to nursing practice, including qualitative studies, quantitative studies and integrative studies that combine qualitative and quantitative evidence. Each section starts with an overview of the methodology. Part 1 explores systematic reviews and meta-analysis of quantitative research, part 2 explores meta-synthesis and meta-study of qualitative research, and part 3 addresses integrative reviews of quantitative and qualitative research. The final part explores the use of systematic reviews in service and practice development.
