• Evidence Based Practice in Nursing


    Evidence Based Practice (EBP) is the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values (Sackett, et al., 2001). [1*]

    The steps to EBP are:

    1. formation of a question
    2. finding evidence
    3. critiquing information
    4. developing a change in practice
    5. evaluating that change

    This site was developed to assist nurses in finding and critiquing information to support and/or change current nursing practice.
