Evidence-Based Practice: An Integrative Approach to Research, Administration, and Practice, Second Edition is an excellent reference for interdisciplinary education and clinical agencies, as well as disciplines focused on translating research evidence to quality practices. The authors provide sound information on the research process and critical appraisal, and use a unique integrative–collaborative approach to apply these principles. They also develop a strong conceptualization of integration of research and evidence-based practice from a clinical and administrative perspective. Learning objectives are included at the beginning of each chapter to identify important concepts and guide readers through the content covered in the text, and review questions and case studies help readers apply what they have learned. The Second Edition will take a more global perspective on health policy and health care.
