Ep 45 Appendix H | Center for Nursing Inquiry


In this podcast, Nursing Inquiry Coordinator, Nadine Rosenblum, and Evidence-based Practice Coordinator, Maddie Whalen, discuss Appendix H, or the Synthesis and Recommendations Tool. Appendix H is the final step in the Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice Model’s evidence-gathering process, or, as Maddie notes, ‘the big reveal.’ She and Nadine discuss the process of distilling down the evidence collected in earlier steps, including tips for synthesizing (not summarizing) evidence and looking for consistencies, as well as inconsistencies, in the evidence. They end with some guidance for Appendix H: this tool requires time to work through, so factor in time for reflection and discussion with your EBP team.
