Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Research within nursing and
medicine is moving at an increasing
pace. This makes it difficult
for the staff - involved with
medical care to find the right
path through all the new research
and development.
Working according to evidencebased
procedures within both
medicine and nursing means
using in one’s work the recommendations
which have been
based on literature studies that
have compiled, reviewed, assessed
and interpreted the published
The aim of a systematic literature
review is to find the best scientific
base for nursing and community
The literature review according to
SBU originates from Goodman’s
definitions, which results in an
order of precedence for the reviewed
Implementation at the work place
is made easier by literature studies
and discussions at meetings
with the nurses.
A literature review requires a
structured way of working where
the question is clearly defined,
the project plan prepared and the
literature search published. The
relevant material is clearly defined,
while the quality of the studies,
precision and generalization
taken from the results produces a
combination and conclusion.
To make the most of evidencebased
methods in the daily work
education of existing staff, courses
integrated in the education of
all nursing staff and an awareness
when planning nationally,
regionally and locally is essential.
