Heart health : using evidence in nursing practice
AbstractHeart Health: using evidence in nursing practice, offers nurses a new approach to learning i.e. self-directed learning. It is a learning tool rather than a textbook and uses several methodologies to assist the learner to access new knowledge and skills and to test that knowledge through reflective practice, checklists etc. More specifically the pack provides information on how to promote heart health. It includes guidance for nurses on how to use evidence in their daily work, how to access the literature as well as how to judge what is valid and reliable evidence. As importantly the pack highlights the difficulties of applying evidence in practice and offers advice and guidance on how change should be managed effectively so that nurses can be helped to improve their practice and ultimately to strive for clinical effectiveness. The pack whilst primarily intended for those nurses wishing to study in a self directed way it can equally be used by students and learners on more conventional courses
