Unlike more expensive, weighty textbooks on the theories, Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence Based Practice: Models and Guidelines provides practical guidelines on the model with exemplars, a question development tool, evidence rating scale, project management, appraisal forms, and evidence summary documents, this book helps nurses not only understand the theory, but also put it into action. The new edition includes expanded and improved tools and forms including additional guidelines for individual appraisals, and both research and non-research-based evidence. Authors will improve the strength and quality of the section on systematic reviews. It is both a textbook for students and a handbook for nurses in practice. Faculty members and staff development instructors can download a PDF of a free, 26-page instructor's guide to use as a resource in teaching the JHNEBP Model. The instructor's guide includes examples of course objectives, how to set up an EBP project for students, and educational strategies for health care organizations. The guide addresses both graduate and undergraduate education.
