  • Understanding Research for Evidence-Based Practice

    Understanding Research for Evidence-Based Practice, 4e

    Cherie R. Rebar, Carolyn J. Gersch

    Designed to help students become research-literate, evidence-based practitioners, this Fourth Edition of Understanding Research for Evidence-Based Practice takes a unique approach that mirrors the way practicing nurses intuitively read research reports. Beginning with the conclusion of a research article—the section that most directly addresses the clinical meaning of a research study—the book works “backward” through the sections of a research article.  

    Organized around student-centered questions, such as how conclusions were reached, which patients the conclusions apply to, and how the study was done, each chapter begins with a clinical case that identifies the clinical question the nurse is seeking to answer and one or two published research articles that directly relate to the clinical case. 

    This Fourth Edition features new online student resources, including interactive critiquing activities as well as video tutorials that demonstrate how to work through research studies and theories.
