In a follow-up to the 2007 best-selling book, Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model and Guidelines, the authors continue to expand upon the Johns Hopkins Nursing EBP model. In this latest publication, the focus is on the complex challenges nurses and the organizations face with evidence-based practice implementation and translation.

Important steps in the EBP process are specifically discussed in this book, including:

Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Implementation and Translation is an excellent tool for those who want to learn, or are already familiar with, the Johns Hopkins EBP model. It is also an invaluable reference for those who are charged with implementing EBP in their organization.
