Johns Hopkins Nursing - Evidence-Based Practice Model And Guidelines

Publisher: Sigma Theta Tau International
1st edition - October 31, 2007
Paperback: 240 pages
ISBN-10: 1930538715
ISBN-13: 978-1930538719

Within a health-care environment of ever-increasing scrutiny and heightened expectations, nurses, physicians, public health scientists, and other health-care professionals must continually explore what works best in patient care based on the best evidence available. The goal of evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing is to promote improved interventions, care, and patient outcomes. Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model and Guidelines depicts three essential cornerstones that form the foundation for professional nursing: practice, education, and research. Nursing practice is the means by which a patient receives nursing care; education reflects the acquisition of the nursing knowledge and skills necessary to become a proficient clinician and to maintain competency; and research provides new knowledge to the profession and enables the development of practices based on scientific evidence. Nurses from The Johns Hopkins Hospital and faculty members from The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing worked in collaboration to develop the practice model in this book. The model and guidelines demystify and facilitate the EBP process for administrators, managers, staff nurses, faculty, and students alike. The practical approach presented here puts EBP within the reach of every nurse and health-care institution.

Publisher: Springer Publishing Company
3rd edition - November 16, 2007
Hardcover: 736 pages
ISBN-10: 0826111033
ISBN-13: 978-0826111036 

This is the third edition of the book formerly entitled Geriatric Nursing Protocols for Best Practice. The original project grew from the efforts of these authors and editors, national leaders in geriatric nursing, and the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing, to improve the quality, outcomes, and cost-effectiveness of health care for the elderly in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and the community. These efforts include influencing both the skills of individual nurses and the quality of the systems in which they are educated and work. This focus on improving geriatric care is driven by the growth in the over-65 population and its impact on the health care system.
