Evidence based practice (EBP) is the conscientious use of current best evidence in making decisions about patient care (Sackett, Straus, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 2000).
It is a problem solving approach to clinical practice and administrative issues that integrates:
A systematic search for and critical appraisal of the most relevant evidence to answer a burning clinical question
One’s own clinical expertise
Patient preferences and values (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2014)
The EBP process is a method that allows the practitioner to assess research, clinical guidelines, and other information resources based on high quality findings and apply the results to practice.
