Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) allows all nurses to implement the most current research for improving high-quality patient care/treatment. The goal of EBP is to change practice to improve patient care delivery and outcomes. Successful implementation of EBP is dependent upon the nurse’s willingness to challenge their assumptions and be willing to work with others to improve patient outcomes. EBP takes into consideration resources, work, time, and effort. This book is an overview of evidence-based practice for nurses related to best practice. The author provides brief notes and examples useful for nurses on evidence-based practice for planning projects in the clinical setting. Guidelines for disseminating evidence-based practice information are provided.
