The five steps of Evidence Based Practice (EBP) provide the foundation for this book that supports student learning to find, appraise, and apply evidence to improve patient outcomes. You will develop evidence-based questions specific to your clinical decisions and conduct efficient and effective searches of print and online sources to identify the most relevant and highest quality research evidence. Then, you learn to rigorously appraise and interpret the research and combine the research with your clinical expertise and your patients’ values and goals. It features a five step process for evidence-based practice: Step 1 – Identify the need for information and construct a focused and searchable clinical question; Step 2 – Conduct a search to find the best possible research evidence to answer your question; Step 3 – Critically appraise the research evidence for validity and applicability; Step 4 – Integrate the critically appraised research evidence with clinical expertise and the patient’s values, preferences, circumstances, and expectations; and, Step 5 – Evaluate the effectiveness and efficacy of your efforts in steps 1-4 and identify ways to improve them in the future. This book covers inferential statistics and clinically relevant statistics and interpretation of statistics for clinical practice. It offers key statistical analyses that inform clinical decisions, including confidence intervals, effect size, number needed to treat (NNT), and minimal clinically important differences. It includes special pedagogical elements such as specific search strategies for Searching in Pub Med, Self Tests, Digging Deeper elements for further study, and abundant clinical case examples. It assists students in the use of current technology to enhance and communicate EBP.
