This text provides a basis for developing clinically effective practice. It describes why clinical effectiveness is important and shows how nursing and midwifery students and professionals can improve the care they deliver to patients. The authors demonstrate clinically effective care through the use of case studies and research evidence which supports nursing interventions. Combining the best of practice with a sound, research based academic framework, Clinical Effectiveness in Practice will be a useful resource for all nurses who want to advance their own practice.
