Published quarterly, the purpose of Evidence-Based Nursing is to select from the health-related literature research studies and reviews that report important advances relevant to best nursing practice. The clinical relevance and rigour of the studies are assessed to identify research that is relevant to nursing. A commentary on chosen articles identifies the key findings and implications for clinical practice. The RCNi and the BMJ publish Evidence-Based Nursing under the editorship of Professor Alison Twycross from London South Bank University, UK. * The purpose of this podcast is to educate and to inform.
