An expanded and revised new edition of the respected evidence-based practice (EBP) foundation text.
Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions, 2nd Edition provides health professions students with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to become evidence-based clinicians.
Years after its 2009 publication, Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions remains one of the few truly multidisciplinary evidence-based practice textbooks meeting the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in inter-professional courses.
Fully revised and expanded, the second edition of this key health textbook picks up where the first left off: demystifying the practice of finding and using evidence to inform decision-making across a range of professions and roles within the healthcare sector.
Evidence-based Practice across the Health Professions, 2nd Edition covers an additional three health disciplines - now totalling 12 - and features a new chapter on the important role of organisations in promoting evidence-based practice. Additional new content includes a greater emphasis on reflection, new clinical scenarios and additional examples of systematic reviews.
The authors' focused, user-friendly approach helps students understand the importance and implications of evidence-based practice, and addresses the growing importance of collaborative practice and the reality of multidisciplinary health teams in the overall healthcare environment.
- Worked examples of a wide range of case scenarios and appraised papers (some are discipline-specific and others are multidisciplinary).
- Designed to be used by students from a wide range of health professions, thus facilitating the student's ability to understand the needs of multi-disciplinary health-care teams in a real-life setting.
- Includes a detailed chapter on implementing evidence into practice and other topics that are not typically addressed in other texts, such as a chapter about how to communicate evidence to clients and another that discusses the role of clinical reasoning in evidence-based practice.
- Summary points at the end of each chapter.
- Supported by an Evolve resource package that contains revision questions that utilize a range of question formats.
