New Ebook Highlight: Bringing Evidence into Everyday Practice : Practical Strategies for Health Care Professionals

We’ve recently added The Bringing Evidence into Everyday Practice : Practical Strategies for Health Care Professionals to our online collection. This book was written by Winnie Dunn and Rachel Proffitt, both faculty in the College of Health Sciences.

Bringing Evidence Into Everyday Practice: Practical Strategies for Health Care Professionals provides a step-by-step process for learning how to use literature to inform quality practices in an accessible workbook format. This book simplifies analyzing research through repetition of core strategies and the systematic introduction of increasingly complex techniques for interpreting literature.

Students, early career professionals, and interdisciplinary teams alike can build a common language and structure for selecting and evaluating evidence to incorporate into their practices.

What’s included in Bringing Evidence Into Everyday Practice:

  • Worksheets to guide learning, available in print and as writable PDFs online
  • Ample opportunities to repeat and practice skills
  • Summary articles, emerging practices, and data collection
  • How to search databases, examine quality features, and identify the parts of a research article
  • A library of articles that learners can access from their libraries

You can access the book online.
