Evidence for Everyday: new for nurses & midwives

Cochrane have launched two new series using Twitter;

Cochrane UK has launched two new series that aim to put relevant evidence into the hands of nurses and midwives, shared on social media in quick, easy formats. With the approach of revalidation, a new way that UK nurses and midwives will need to show that they practice safely and effectively, there is no better time to make getting evidence easier for them…

These new series are called Evidence for Everyday Nursing and Evidence for Everyday Midwifery. The hashtags are #EENursing and #EEMidwifery. We’ve called them ‘everyday’ because we’ll be focusing on common topics or those that are applicable across specialities. It also acknowledges that everyday practice should be evidence-based practice!
