Evidence based practice (EBP) is the conscientious use of current best evidence in making decisions about patient care (Sackett, Straus, Richardson, Rosenberg, & Haynes, 2000).
You might be asking, "Why do I need to know how to develop EBP research skills?"
Here are a few reasons:
Knowing how to find evidence (such as RCTs or Meta-Analyses) are likely to result in the desired patient outcome
Provides opportunities for nursing care to be more individualized
Allows nurses to stay up to date with latest developments
Evidence-based nursing is “an integration of the best evidence available, nursing expertise, and the values and preferences of the individuals, families and communities who are served” (Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International, 2011).
Evidence-based nursing practice is a 5 step systematic process which leads to apply quality evidence from research to make effective decisions about clinical and other healthcare problems.
These five steps include:
Asking the Clinical Question
