Putting Evidence into Practice
The Oncology Nursing Society has designed this resource to provide evidence-based interventions for patient care in the field of oncology nursing. These resources can be used to plan individual patient care, patient education, nursing education, quality improvement, and research. PEP evidence syntheses answer the question of what interventions are effective in preventing or treating the outcome of interest. Topics are patient-centred outcomes, such as symptoms, that are selected by a survey of ONS members and determination of availability of evidence in the topic. Topic teams categorize the interventions by consensus application of the ONS PEP Classification Schema into seven colour coded categories. Click on the following link to explore: PEP website.

If you are looking for excellent examples of past dissertations produced by nursing and midwifery students, a selection is available in the short loan collection in Franklin Wilkins Library.
Ask staff on the Enquiry Desk for further information.
