Master of Nursing (Child Nursing) evidence-based practice guideline posters

This is a suite of posters presented by the Master of Nursing (Child Nursing) graduates at the University of Cape Town. This professional masters’ programme is offered in collaboration with the Division of Nursing and Midwifery and the Child Nurse Practice Development Initiative in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health.

Each poster represents an evidence-based practice guideline 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 nursing practice of children, 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. These evidence-based practice guidelines 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. The posters contain key learnings from the guideline development process.
