About this Book

Nurse-led intervention research is a core component of the global initiative to improve quality of care.  Though research in this area has already contributed much to the advancement of patient care, future strides depend on the dissemination of practical, how-to instruction on this important area of research.  Design, Evaluation, and Translation of Nursing Interventions aids in this endeavour by presenting both general approaches and specific methods for developing nursing interventions.

Logically organized to facilitate ease of use, the book is divided into four sections.  The introduction provides a firm grounding in intervention science by situating it within the broader topics of evidence-based practice, client-centred care, and quality of care.  Section Two describes each step of intervention design, including correct identification of the health issue or problem, clarification of the elements comprising an intervention, and application of theory. Section Three is centred on implementation, highlighting such topics as development of the intervention manual, training interventionists, and intervention fidelity.  The book concludes with methods to evaluate interventions enacted and suggestions for their translation into practice.

Design, Evaluation, and Translation of Nursing Interventions distills the authors' years of expertise in intervention research into comprehensive, easy-to-follow chapters.  It is a must-have resource for students, researchers and healthcare professionals wishing to impact the future of patient care.
