Being able to understand how nursing models and theories were developed, and acquiring the skills to evaluate them, enables students to consider the validity of these for application in practice. The second edition of this book includes updated research on applying models and theories during nursing placements. It takes the reader from learning to applying in logical steps, from selecting a suitable model to the criteria for theory description and evaluation. It is user friendly and visually engaging, with colour codes for different chapters, and the learning outcomes, key concepts and revision points to remember are highlighted throughout. Illustrations and tables help clarify some of the more complex ideas. The authors provide reflection activities after each chapter to enhance the knowledge that readers will gain. There are references for good seminal and current texts following every chapter.
The impact of evidence-based practice EBP has echoed across nursing practice, education, and science. The call for evidence-based quality improvement and healthcare transformation underscores the need for redesigning care that is effective, safe, and efficient. In line with multiple direction-setting recommendations from national experts, nurses have responded to launch initiatives that maximize the valuable contributions that nurses have made, can make, and will make, to fully deliver on the promise of EBP. Such initiatives include practice adoption; education and curricular realignment; model and theory development; scientific engagement in the new fields of research; and development of a national research network to study improvement. The article concludes with discussion of the next big ideas in EBP , based on two federal initiatives, and considers opportunities and challenges as EBP continues to support other exciting new thinking in healthcare.
