This innovative book strips the concept of evidence-based practice back to basics using deconstructive analysis, so that readers can move towards a clearer understanding of it. The practitioner is guided through a number of case studies in which the authors examine how the concept of evidence-based practice has been used in a variety of clinical settings. Divided into three parts, the book provides a deconstruction of key texts related to evidence based practice, weaving together contemporary themes in healthcare research. Deconstructing Evidence Based Practice is essential reading for nurses and other health practitioners who need to understand more about evidence-based practice and who want to learn methods of critical thinking that will be invaluable in judiciously informing their practice.
