Launch of our UCT open access Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines

23 Aug 2019 - 13:15

We are delighted to announce the launch of our evidence-based practice guidelines (EBPGs) as an UCT open access resource.

Follow this link - - to see last year’s Master of Nursing (Child Nursing) graduates’ poster presentations of their EBPGs. 

Each poster represents an EBPG that was compiled after a rigorous research process completed in partial fulfilment of a clinical masters’ degree. The research project included the identification of a contextually relevant topic in clinical child nursing practice, a scope review of the topic, a review of two to three existing or related practice guidelines, a collation of recommendations for practice and the design of a flow chart to be used in clinical settings. 

To note: These EBPGs are the outcome of independent research projects. As such, they require local clinical peer and content experts’ evaluation before implementing them to different contexts/locations. The posters describe the rigour of the process, which contributes to the trustworthiness of the outcome and contain key learnings from the guideline development process.
