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.



Essentials of Clinical Reasoning for Nurses, 1e

Essentials of Clinical Reasoning for Nurses
By: RuthAnne Kuiper, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF; Sandra M. O'Donnell, MSN, RN, CNE; Daniel J. Pesut, PhD, RN, FAAN; Stephanie L. Turrise, PhD, RN, BC, APRN
ISBN:

In today's healthcare environment of scarce resources and challenges related to safety and quality, nurses must make decision after decision to ensure timely, accurate, and efficient provision of care. Solid decision-making, or lack thereof, can significantly affect patient care and outcomes.

Clinical reasoning - how a nurse processes information and chooses what action to take - is a skill vital to nursing practice and split-second decisions. And yet, developing the clinical reasoning to make good decisions takes time, education, experience, patience, and reflection. Along the way, nurses can benefit from a successful, practical model that demystifies and advances clinical reasoning skills.

The Essentials of Clinical Reasoning for Nurses, authors RuthAnne Kuiper, Sandra O'Donnell, Daniel Pesut, and Stephanie Turrise provide a model that supports learning and teaching clinical reasoning, development of reflective and complex thinking, clinical supervision, and care planning through scenarios, diagnostic cues, case webs, and more.



Developing a Residency in Post-Acute Care, 1e

Developing a Residency in Post-Acute Care
By: Edna Cadmus, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN; Susan Salmond, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN; Linda Hassler, DNP, RN, GCNS-BC, FNGNA; Nancy Bohnarczyk, MA, RN, CNE; Katherine Kuren Black, MSN, RN-BC
ISBN:
978-1-945157-01-1
Pub Date: June 2017
Price: $64.95

As the U.S. population ages, healthcare is shifting from acute care environments to post-acute and community settings. New nurses in particular lack the specialized knowledge required for chronic care and gerontological care and are often unprepared to transition into post-acute settings.

Developing a Residency in Post-Acute Care offers practical curricula based on an innovative and successful nurse residency model that positions staff educators and preceptors to support new nurses as they enter post-acute settings. This indispensable book also provides tools and resources for nurse educators to use in developing and training new and existing staff, including:

  • Lesson plans, objectives, and outlines
  • Detailed case studies
  • Activities geared toward adult learners
  • Participant evaluation methods
  • Strategies for presenting material
  • References and additional resources
The application model provided in Developing a Residency in Post-Acute Care is fully adaptable for multiple post-acute settings. This resource enables instructors to enhance competence and confidence in new nurses - not simply re-teach materials learned in school. In the end, better onboarding can lead to significant improvements in cost, quality of care, and nurse retention rates
