"The authors have taken pains to make the subject accessible and the result is a terrific book for newcomers to evidence-based practice, as well as old hands. One of the more ground breaking aspects is that they deal with all imaginable types of evidence available today in healthcare. The authors help the reader understand the merits of each type and how it can be used. This is an invaluable book." Irene Mabbott, Practice Development Co-ordinator, Evidence-Based Practice, Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust "At last, a jargon free Evidence Based Practice Book! This book gives the impression that it is a friendly tutor always on standby to answer any of your questions. It is written well, in a personable style to allow the reader to take in all the concepts of Evidence Based Practice. The book is up to date and recognises that not all areas of health and social care have the privilege of being supported by huge pieces of research and RCT's. In these cases, advice and guidance is readily at hand in the book to show the reader what other evidence can be out there and how to use it." Irene Mabbott, Practice Development Co-ordinator (Evidence based Practice), Northern General Hospital, Sheffield "I love this book. It's ideal for students new to research and qualified professionals needing an update. I wish it had been around when I was a student as it would have made searching for, critiquing and reviewing literature a much smoother process. I think this book should be on every university reading list. It is set out in an easy to follow format with lots of examples relating to practice which allows the reader to understand the importance research from the first page." Lynda Luke, Registered Nurse and Moderator on www.studentnurse.org.uk "The book provides a basic introduction to Evidence Based Practice and many related issues. A spectrum of information from 'what is evidence' to 'how to implement evidence' has been included in an easy to navigate contents page. Some clinical experience is necessary to understand the links to clinical practice their importance and implications. Some useful website addresses are provided in order to increase and widen access to other necessary resources."

Written by and for nurse practitioners, this practical textbook focuses on what primary care providers need to learn and practice drug therapy. With an overall emphasis on patient teaching and health promotion, you will learn how to provide effective patient teaching about medications and how to gain patient compliance. Drug coverage focuses on “key drugs rather than “prototype drugs, so you can find important information about the most commonly used drugs rather than the first drug in each class. You will also find discussions on the legal and professional issues unique to nurse practitioners and other primary care providers. The 3rd edition also features an expanded emphasis on established clinical practice guidelines and evidence-based practice, plus two new chapters that cover drugs for ADHD and drugs for dementia.

Panacea or revolution? 'Evidence-based medicine' and 'cost-effectiveness' have become buzz-phrases for a wide variety of initiatives and planning processes which aim to give patients treatments that will benefit them. On the surface this seems a reasonable idea, but there are underlying currents which cast doubt on the process and reveal methodological problems, which must be understood if the concepts are to be properly used. Assuming no prior knowledge of the field, and written in the clear, straightforward manner the author uses in the highly successful Health Economics for the Uninitiated, this book is a short practical guide on how to use these concepts, and how to avoid their pitfalls. It will appeal to doctors, nurses, health service managers, patient organizations, academics and students of health care. It will provide essential support to those working in health care companies, and in the pharmaceutical and medical equipment industry.

The Art oft the Start Dieser äußerst praktische Ratgeber behandelt alle wichtigen Punkte, die man bei der Gründung einer Organisation, ob Unternehmen oder Non-Profit-Initiative, bedenken muss. Guy Kawasaki weiß dabei aus eigenen Erfahrungen, dass die Gründung weniger eine Wissenschaft als vielmehr eine Kunst ist. In elf Kapiteln stellt er dar, wie man die Kunst der Gründung erlernt mit dem Ziel, die Dinge von vornherein „richtig anzupacken“. Guy Kawasaki schreibt leichtgängig und humorvoll. FAQs, zahlreiche Übungen und Checklisten werden effektvoll eingesetzt und geben Orientierung bei der Umsetzung. Gängige Überzeugungen widerlegt er mit persönlichen Erfahrungen und verdichtet sie zu ganz konkreten Empfehlungen. Jedes Kapitel beginnt mit einer Quintessenz. Hilfreiche „Minikapitel“ gehen auf viele „nebensächliche“ Dinge ein wie „Die Kunst, gute PowerPoint-Präsentation zu erstellen“, „Die Kunst des Netzwerkens“ oder „Die Kunst, ein guter Redner zu sein“.
