Fosters fundamental skills needed to critically evaluate evidence from published research studies.

This is the first resource to provide APRN students and practicing clinicians with a step-by-step guide to critically analyze evidence from research studies. As part of a profession that relies on best evidence, nurses need to be able to effectively assess research articles. Equipped with these skills, nurses will lead an informed practice and improve patient care.

This text delves past outlining the elements of critique to teach by example, walking through every part of a research article, from the title to the conclusion, and highlighting specific queries which need to be answered to craft a strong critique.
