About This Webinar

There is a huge amount of literature available on wound care practices, but how do we know what information is valid and reliable? Many nurses have a solid background in conventional nursing practices; however, those practices differ across countries, across settings, and even among nurses on the same team. Because of this variation in practice patient outcomes are adversely affected, healing is slowed down and the cost of care rises. How can we evaluate what practices are based on tradition and what practices are really driven by evidence?

This session will provide a basis in evidence-based practice. I will explain how to formulate a question that can be answered and conduct an efficient search. We will talk about the various databases that exist, what function they have and how to use them effectively. We will talk about study types and design and how that can influence the results.

I will present critical appraisal and how to use it to interpret research findings. I will review the most recent and strongest evidence to support clinical wound care practices based on a thorough literature review and synthesis to show how to interpret the literature in a practical way and use it to change clinical practice. I will provide the best evidence available on wound care. A method to interpret the literature and a summary of evidence-based practices.
