Abstract: This is the only nursing text to facilitate the achievement by Doctor of Nursing Practice graduates (DNPs)s of the highest possible competency in conducting systematic and in-depth evaluations of all aspects of health care. The second edition of this award-winning text keeps pace with the rapidly evolving health care market by presenting a more comprehensive range of evaluation strategies for analyzing quality, safety, and value in health carepractice and programs, with an emphasis on conducting, interpreting, and disseminating findings. It includes three new chapters addressing evaluation and outcomes, program evaluation, quality improvement, and reporting and disseminating the results. Based on the best evidence-based practices, the book provides DNPs with in-depth information on the conceptual basis of evaluation, its application as an integral part of contemporary health care delivery, and resources and methodology for evaluation of practice outcomes. It includes a critical examination of the characteristics, sources, and quality of the nature of evidence and presents several different evaluation models including those that focus on economic evaluation. The evaluation of organizations, systems, and standards for practice are covered in detail as are the evaluation of populations and health care teams, particularly interdisciplinary collaborative health teams. Also addressed is the process for translating outcomes from evaluation into health care policy, and opportunities for advocacy and leadership. Numerous examples and case studies illustrate concepts.
