Abstract

Critical appraisal essentially means the assessment of the quality of a piece of work and is a key component of EBP. As such it is a core skill for those engaged in reviewing or implementing new evidence. Much of what is written in relation to this area relates to critical appraisal of published research literature. However other types of evidence are fast emerging. It is essential that nurses critically appraise all evidence before integrating it into practice. In this chapter examples of tools that can help with this process are identified and the skills needed outlined.
