"Real-life" examples assist the reader in actualizing important concepts and overcoming barriers in the implementation of evidence-based care; efficient critical appraisal of both quantitative and qualitative evidence; how to factor in a clinician's expertise and patient preferences/values when making decisions about patient care; chapters on outcomes management and how to create a vision to motivate a change to best practice; chapters on generating both qualitative and quantitative evidence; how to write a successful grant proposal; as well as a chapter on how to disseminate evidence to other professionals, the media, and policy-makers. The text also includes web-alerts that direct readers to helpful internet resources and an accompanying CD-ROM with 40 evidence reviews written by experts in the field that answer burning clinical questions across six specialty areas: adults in critical/acute care; adults in primary care; aging; emergency & trauma care; high-risk children & youth; and psychiatric mental health.
