New York-Presbyterian Hospital, one of the nation’s most comprehensive academic healthcare delivery systems, uses the evidence-based practice PEACE model to prepare all its nurses and position them as essential to improving patient and family-centered care. Not surprisingly, the healthcare network has continuously delivered high quality care and improved patient outcomes. Now, nurses everywhere can replicate this highly successful model.
In The PEACE Model Evidence-Based Practice Guide for Clinical Nurses, authors Reynaldo R. Rivera and Joyce J. Fitzpatrick provide a road map to model implementation. Readers will learn to formulate and address clinical questions and disseminate findings, ultimately helping nurses integrate evidence at the bedside and through quality research. After reading this book, you will be able to:
- Apply the components of evidence-based practice (EBP) in your day-to-day nursing practice
- Differentiate between EBP, research, and quality improvement
- Discuss the PEACE model process, from problem identification to dissemination of findings
- Identify resources to support nurses in EBP, quality improvement, and research
A sample chapter and PEACE model flyer are available to download for free on the Sigma Repository.
