Abstract

Review of recent evidence with translation to practice for the advanced practice nurse role is presented using a case study format for “Mild Traumatic Brain Injury in Children.” This “short review” describes the state of the science regarding diagnosis and treatment of mild traumatic brain injury in children, demonstrating multiple challenges to synthesizing existing research into practice guidelines. Implications of this lack of clear research evidence on advanced practice nursing are discussed along with suggestions for using alternative sources of evidence.
