Models and Frameworks for Implementing Evidence- Based Practice: Linking Evidence to Action looks at ways of implementing evidence gained through research and factors that influence successful implementation. It acknowledges the gap that exists between obtaining evidence and the practicalities of putting it into practice and provides direction to help to close this gap. This, the first book in the series, helps the reader to make decisions about the appropriateness of using various models and frameworks. A selection of models and frameworks are examined in detail including examples of their use in practice. The book concludes with an analysis and synthesis of the included models and frameworks.

Clinical Context for Evidence-Based Practice is the second of three books on implementing evidence based practice in the Evidence–Based nursing series. Implementation research is increasingly demonstrating that for evidence to be successfully implemented into practice, wider issues such as contextual elements need to be considered. Consequently it is important that contextual factors are explored in relation to the different healthcare settings that exist worldwide.

Evaluating the Impact of Implementing Evidence-Based Practice considers the importance of approaches to evaluate the implementation of evidence-based practice. Outcomes of evidence-based practice can be wide ranging and sometimes unexpected. It is therefore important to evaluate the success of any implementation in terms of clinical outcomes, influence on health status, service users and health policy and long-term sustainability, as well as economic impacts. This, the third and final book in the series, looks at how best to identify, evaluate and assess the outcomes of implementation, reflecting a wide range of issues to consider and address when planning and measuring outcomes.
