It identifies and explores recent evidence based midwifery initiatives, reflects upon current philosophical and methodological issues, and explores how midwives might best use the current evidence base to enhance their clinical practice. This text explores the current policy drivers influencing evidence based midwifery and covers topics such as problem-based learning, implementation of evidence-based guidelines and the role of the service-user and makes recommendations for future evidence based practice in midwifery. With the use of real-life examples throughout, this text will encourage midwives to reflect upon and critically analyse the evidence that underpins midwifery practice, and utilise it to develop their skills.

Main Description
Evidence based practice is now widely accepted as a fundamental tenet of midwifery. The importance of evidence in defining midwifery policy and practice in the UK health system, and others, is acknowledged and enduring. While the development and evaluation of research in midwifery is well charted, the question of how such evidence is incorporated into practice has, to date, received less attention and discussion in the midwifery profession. Answering this need, Evidence Based Midwifery focuses on the dissemination and use of evidence for midwifery practice, and explores midwives' experiences in using the evidence base to inform policy and enhance clinical practice.Written by a highly-regarded and diverse group from the UK and international midwifery community, Evidence Based Midwifery addresses issues of relevance to all midwives whether clinical practitioners or educators, students or supervisors, researchers or managers. Issues that influence evidence based midwifery are discussed, and topics covered include problem based learning, implementation of evidence based guidelines and the involvement of service users. Edited by founder members of the Evidence Based Midwifery Network International collaboration with contributions from the UK, Greece, Canada and the Netherlands Primary focus on the incorporation of evidence into midwifery practice Real-life examples throughout
