Purpose: An outcomes-based emphasis in forensic nursing requires identifying and utilizing the best available evidence in order to produce safe, quality, and effective patient care. This is accomplished by encouraging and supporting nurse-driven research, utilizing existing forensic and legal research to integrate Evidence-Based Practice (EBP), and establishing forensic nursing implications and education that will result in enhanced patient outcomes, patient and forensic nurse satisfaction, and safe and effective high-quality forensic nursing care. While this can be a formidable task for many clinical nurses, the AFN Journal Club serves to review research studies and discuss their implications on evidence-based clinical practice. Goals: (1) Improve the critical literature review skills of forensic nurses from all disciplines. (2) Stimulate ideas and best practices that can be used to develop AFN Position Statements. (3) Improve the clinical practice of the forensic nurse caring for patients at the bedside. (4) Generate suggestions for future forensic nursing research.
