As a group you will collaborate to build a Wiki on your group’s allocated topic.
This subject teaches you about nursing research and how to use the available evidence as a basis for your nursing practice. This assignment requires you to search for professional literature, analyse the content and present the evidence to address a particular topic.

3. Explain why these concepts are central to contemporary health care.
4. Provide examples of how the concepts of the interdisciplinary team and consumer participation are applied in
5. Identify and describe the professional skills nurses need to work effectively within an interdisciplinary team.
