Full Text: The Nurses Utilisation of Evidence to Inform Practice project is being evaluated throughout August. It is a Ministry of Health-funded project looking at ways to improve the accessibility of evidence-based information to support nurses, in their workplaces and homes.

To help improve access to information, the Nursing Evidence website ( has a range of high quality web resources and a tutorial section to support staff to find reliable information. A teaching package has been distributed and the project team (comprising all South Island directors of nursing) is aiming to allow free access to a funded database such as Proquest or Ebsco through Nursing Evidence. Ultimately, we hope the website will become a one-stop shop resource, providing nurses with a range of high quality reputable internet resources.

Although the Ministry funding for this project covered the South Island, all nurses from New Zealand are invited to take part in this survey to provide valuable information for the project team to take into the future. The survey can be accessed on Any queries, please email:
