The importance of highlighting effective practice by writing for publication

Parveen Ali Lecturer, The University of Sheffield School of Nursing and Midwifery

Publishing in journals is an important responsibility of academics, researchers and practitioners. It helps us to share information about innovative and effective nursing practice. Evidence-based practice is vital to nursing, and health and social care, but research suggests it is less widespread than it should be. One reason may be that front-line practitioners do not always have the support, time and knowledge to search for and review evidence

Making research accessible

There is a need for the latest evidence to be provided in an accessible format and this is where the role of journals such as those published by RCNi becomes significant. Articles in RCNi journals tend to be shorter in length and are written in accessible language so that practitioners working in specific clinical fields recognise their relevance to practice immediately. As a result, they can keep themselves updated about current evidence on relevant practices so they can improve care provision.
