"The authors have taken pains to make the subject accessible and the result is a terrific book for newcomers to evidence-based practice, as well as old hands. One of the more ground breaking aspects is that they deal with all imaginable types of evidence available today in healthcare. The authors help the reader understand the merits of each type and how it can be used. This is an invaluable book." Irene Mabbott, Practice Development Co-ordinator, Evidence-Based Practice, Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust "At last, a jargon free Evidence Based Practice Book! This book gives the impression that it is a friendly tutor always on standby to answer any of your questions. It is written well, in a personable style to allow the reader to take in all the concepts of Evidence Based Practice. The book is up to date and recognises that not all areas of health and social care have the privilege of being supported by huge pieces of research and RCT's. In these cases, advice and guidance is readily at hand in the book to show the reader what other evidence can be out there and how to use it." Irene Mabbott, Practice Development Co-ordinator (Evidence based Practice), Northern General Hospital, Sheffield "I love this book. It's ideal for students new to research and qualified professionals needing an update. I wish it had been around when I was a student as it would have made searching for, critiquing and reviewing literature a much smoother process. I think this book should be on every university reading list. It is set out in an easy to follow format with lots of examples relating to practice which allows the reader to understand the importance research from the first page." Lynda Luke, Registered Nurse and Moderator on www.studentnurse.org.uk "The book provides a basic introduction to Evidence Based Practice and many related issues. A spectrum of information from 'what is evidence' to 'how to implement evidence' has been included in an easy to navigate contents page. Some clinical experience is necessary to understand the links to clinical practice their importance and implications. Some useful website addresses are provided in order to increase and widen access to other necessary resources."
