Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0335236030, Paperback)"At last, a jargon free Evidence Based Practice Book! This book gives the impression that it is a friendly tutor always on standby to answer any of your questions. It is written well, in a personable style to allow the reader to take in all the concepts of Evidence Based Practice. The book is up to date and recognises that not all areas of health and social care have the privilege of being supported by huge pieces of research and RCT's. In these cases, advice and guidance is readily at hand in the book to show the reader what other evidence can be out there and how to use it."
Irene Mabbott, Practice Development Co-ordinator (Evidence based Practice), Northern General Hospital, Sheffield
"I love this book. It's ideal for students new to research and qualified professionals needing an update. I wish it had been around when I was a student as it would have made searching for, critiquing and reviewing literature a much smoother process. I think this book should be on every university reading list. It is set out in an easy to follow format with lots of examples relating to practice which allows the reader to understand the importance research from the first page."
"I would just like to say this is the best text I have come across for my module for under-graduate students. It is pitched at just the right level and is written in a style that is easy to engage with. The layout and the structure are also easy to follow and it is a really good introduction to EBP. I intend recommending this to my students and thank you once again for sending me a copy of this."
