Description

This programme will introduce participants to a range of skills which are essential when completing academic studies. It will explore evidence-based practice (EBP), which provides nurses and midwives with a method to use critically appraised and
scientifically proven evidence, thus ensuring that practice is based on the most up-to-date appraised evidence. An overview will be provided on information resources, such as journals and databases. Guidance will be provided on methods for critically
appraising both qualitative and quantitative studies. Skills for incorporating analysis and critique in written assignments will also be illustrated and various referencing styles will be presented and demonstrated.
