This book examines the concepts of clinical effectiveness, evidence based practise and clinical governance and discusses how these impact on everyday nursing practice.  It considers what the term clinical effectiveness means and examines how it fits into the context of clinical governance. 

The book provides practical information on how to evaluate published research and looks at the implications for nurse education and continuing professional development.  It also considers the implications for nursing, particularly their role and relationship with patients, and the need for multidisciplinary working.  Finally the book provides some helpful resources and methods of tapping into health information.
