Despite sustained debate and progress the evolving thing that is evidence based nursing or practice (EBP) continues to dangle a variety of conceptual and practical loose threads. Moreover, when we think about what is being asked of students and registered or licenced practitioners in terms of EBP, it is difficult not to concede that this ‘ask’ is in many instances quite large and, occasionally, it may be unachievable. EBP has and continues to improve patient, client and user care. Yet significant questions concerning its most basic elements remain unresolved and, if nurses are to contribute to the resolution or reconfiguration of these questions then, as a first step, we must acknowledge their existence. From a range of international standpoints and perspectives, contributors to this book focus on aspects of EBP that require development. This focus is always robust and at times it is unashamedly provocative. Contributors challenge readers to engage with anomalies that surround the subject and readers are asked to consider the often precarious assumptions that underpin key aspects of EBP. While both conflict and concord are evident among the various offerings presented here, the book nonetheless creates and sustains a narrative that is bigger or more substantial than the sum of individual parts. And, across contributions, a self-assuredly critical stance towards EBP as currently practiced, conceptualized and taught coexists alongside respectful admiration for all who make it happen. Exploring Evidence-based Practice: Debates and Challenges in Nursing should be considered essential reading for academics and postgraduate students with an interest in evidence-based practice and nursing research.

The Continuum of Stroke Care: An Interprofessional Approach to Evidence-Based Care will address the clinical care of stroke patients across the continuum of care from primary prevention of stroke, the acute and subacute treatment of stroke syndromes through rehabilitation, and reintegration into the community. Each chapter will review current evidence-based practice guiding clinical stroke care. The book will address the American Stroke Association’s Stroke Chain of Survival addressing prehospital care of the stroke patient and the development of stroke systems of care to provide all people in the United States access to acute stroke care. Additionally, the book will cover the current role of state legislation in stroke care and the evolution of hospital stroke certification. The book will serve as a clinical resource providing detailed comprehensive medical and nursing care of all stroke subtypes while also addressing the system of stroke care in which medical, nursing and interprofessional care provided. As such, the book will serve as a clinical resource to medical and nursing caregivers providing direct patient care as well as stroke coordinators, program directors and other hospital administrators developing stroke programs. The book will also be a clinical resource for stroke interprofessional team members such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, Stroke care is most successful at improving patient outcomes when delivered by an interdisciplinary team. Each chapter will address the critical role of the interprofessional team and highlight comprehensive care of the stroke patient rather than focusing only on nursing care. Books published to date focus solely on the medical or nursing care of the stroke patient without attention to the stroke system of care and the role of the multidisciplinary team in improving stroke outcomes. Additionally, each chapter will highlight ongoing research trials and opportunities, with the recognition that the scientific foundation for acute stroke care is rapidly evolving.

The Institute of Medicine study Crossing the Quality Chasm (2001) recommended that an interdisciplinary summit be held to further reform of health professions education in order to enhance quality and patient safety. Health Professions Education: A Bridge to Quality is the follow up to that summit, held in June 2002, where 150 participants across disciplines and occupations developed ideas about how to integrate a core set of competencies into health professions education. These core competencies include patient-centered care, interdisciplinary teams, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and informatics. This book recommends a mix of approaches to health education improvement, including those related to oversight processes, the training environment, research, public reporting, and leadership. Educators, administrators, and health professionals can use this book to help achieve an approach to education that better prepares clinicians to meet both the needs of patients and the requirements of a changing health care system.

Interprofessional teamwork and collaborative practice are emerging as key elements of efficient and productive work in promoting health and treating patients. The vision for these collaborations is one where different health and/or social professionals share a team identity and work closely together to solve problems and improve delivery of care. Although the value of interprofessional education (IPE) has been embraced around the world - particularly for its impact on learning - many in leadership positions have questioned how IPE affects patent, population, and health system outcomes. This question cannot be fully answered without well-designed studies, and these studies cannot be conducted without an understanding of the methods and measurements needed to conduct such an analysis. This Institute of Medicine report examines ways to measure the impacts of IPE on collaborative practice and health and system outcomes. According to this report, it is possible to link the learning process with downstream person or population directed outcomes through thoughtful, well-designed studies of the association between IPE and collaborative behavior. Measuring the Impact of Interprofessional Education on Collaborative Practice and Patient Outcomes describes the research needed to strengthen the evidence base for IPE outcomes. Additionally, this report presents a conceptual model for evaluating IPE that could be adapted to particular settings in which it is applied. Measuring the Impact of Interprofessional Education on Collaborative Practice and Patient Outcomes addresses the current lack of broadly applicable measures of collaborative behavior and makes recommendations for resource commitments from interprofessional stakeholders, funders, and policy makers to advance the study of IPE.
