Abstract

Evidence-based Practice (EBP) is a feature of contemporary healthcare practice and subsequently is well embedded within preparation programmes for nursing, midwifery and Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) students. This article, the ninth in a series of eleven, seeks to delineate evidence-based practice, whilst discussing the importance and implementation of this approach within the context of the developmental role of mentors and practice teachers, in the preparation of nurses, midwives and SCPHNs. Furthermore, the aim is to provide guidance for both new and established mentors and practice teachers in relation to the domain ‘Evidence-based Practice’ specifically the outcomes for stage 2 Mentor and stage 3 Practice Teacher highlighted within the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) ‘Standards to Support Learning and Assessment in Practice’ (SSLAP). The text will be interspersed with these outcomes for mentors and practice teachers where they apply. In addition the activities indicated within this article will provide the opportunity for mentors and practice teachers to develop within their role, but also to generate evidence in order to map this on-going development against the NMC (2008) SSLAP
