Description

For baccalaureate and associate-level courses in nursing research, research utilization, and evidence-based practice; and for convenient reference by practicing nurses and master’s degree candidates.

 

This innovative text is designed to teach undergraduate students to critically read and apply research findings in evidence-based clinical practice. Rather than belaboring the research process itself, MAKING A DIFFERENCE WITH NURSING RESEARCH focuses on guiding students step-by-step through finding, analyzing, and applying relevant research to solve the specific problems they may encounter in providing patient care. It presents a clear basic discussion of quantitative and qualitative research processes, offers practical examples applying key concepts, provides detailed strategies for searching the literature, introduces the structured PICOT process for reading and dissecting articles; and offers a chapter-length PICOT case study. Throughout, end-of-chapter exercises and web-based activities provide many opportunities for hands-on practice.
