Graphics for dissemination of meta-analyses to staff nurses.

Meta-analytic findings can be useful to nurses seeking research results to guide practice, but graphics used by meta-analysts take time to master. Simpler displays can be created by staff development educators if they understand commonly used meta-analytic displays.
