Implications for nursing managers from a systematic review of practice development
This paper considers some of the implications for Nursing Managers arising from a recent systematic review of practice development carried out in the UK by McCormack et al. (2007a, b). The paper begins by offering some background to practice development (PD). It then summarizes the methodology and method of the systematic review before moving on to discuss, what it is suggested, are the main implications Nursing Managers need to focus on. Finally, 10 points or key messages from the review, relevant for Nursing Managers, are offered. This paper is relevant not only to managers in older people's services but to all services.
