Part 1 Explain why it is important for nurses to use credible and relevant evidence to underpin their clinical practice. (Justify and support answers with credible and relevant evidence whilst adhering to UWS referencing guidance). The role of nurse changes as new research emerges and finds new and improved ways of helping patients to be restored to health.

Proper documentation not only helps keep the patient safe, but just as importantly protects the nurse should a lawsuit occur. Austin’s article defines the legal terms used in the more common lawsuit, negligence, involving nurses and how to avoid them. First, the patient must prove four things in order for a lawsuit to be deemed in their favor: A duty to the patient existed, a breach of duty occurred, the patient was injured, and lastly the injury
Globally, health care environments are rapidly developing which leads to a need for guidance to practice high quality effective care( Craig & Smyth 2007).In the way of improving health care practice, the need of Evidence-based practice (EBP) is essential to develop this type of care (Craig & Smyth 2007).

According to Fain (2009), research is needed to build up new knowledge and skill in order to improve the quality of care and to move from ritualistic practice to researched practice (Holland & Rees 2010). Furthermore, EBP based on research evidence and useful in reduce cost care (Craig & Smyth 2007). Locally, the practice of EBP is new and recently developed and applied in studies and practice (MOH 2012).
When reading the IAMFC Code of Ethics and AAMFT Code of Ethics I found that they compare significantly, much more than they contrast. Many of the principals coincide. For example, the topic of multiple relationships is one of the many principles that parallel in many codes of ethics. The IAMFC Code of Ethics encourages family counselors to “avoid whenever possible multiple relationships, such as business, social, or sexual contacts with any current clients or family members” (Section A).

healthcare system. I found these trends very important, because they help the health care managers align the organization with the changing external environment. The first trend is eMedicine which enables patients to be more involved in their own care.
