Cover image for lecture: How to Use Evidence to Guide Your Practice

Lecture Overview

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s enrolled nurse standards of practice outline that ENs must 'provide nursing care that is informed by researched evidence' (NMBA 2016). In unfamiliar situations, nurses are expected to source new information and incorporate evidence into your practice. This useful session will demonstrate how you can realistically apply high-quality evidence to your practice.

Informative, though a little repetitive. Easy to listen to, and helpful.
