Description : One of the biggest challenges of evidence-based practice (EBP) is translating knowledge, research, and clinical expertise into action. Failure to execute EBP well is rarely due to a lack of information, understanding, or experience; rather, it comes down to the lack of tools and practicality of implementing EBP into nursing care. Evidence-Based Practice in Action is a unique, application-oriented EBP toolkit that follows the steps of the newly modified Iowa Model Revised: Evidence-Based Practice to Promote Excellence in Health Care. This book offers a detailed plan to guide nurses and healthcare leaders in promoting EBP adoption and implementation. This practical, easy-to-use guide directs healthcare leaders through preparing, implementing, and evaluating EBP and provides tools for topic selection, literature searches, research and evidence review, implementation, and evaluation. The authors provide comprehensive building blocks along with strategies, tools, and tips to guide individuals and teams who make the important day-to-day decisions that ultimately affect patient outcomes. 2nd Place 2018 AJN Book of the Year
