There are two dominant themes in modern nursing and medicine. The first is evidence-based practice. The second is modern management theory. This book brings these two dominant themes together in a fascinating study of evidence-based management. Evidence-based practice has become accepted as the 'gold standard' in all aspects of clinical practice. It brings the same principles of conscientious, explicit, and judicious decision-making into the rapidly emerging field of nursing and medical management. This book explores how the established principles of evidence-based clinical practice can be applied in modern nursing and medical management.
