Evidence-Based Practice

Introduction to EBP

Evidence-based practice is a conscientious, problem-solving approach to clinical practice that incorporates (1) the best evidence from well-designed studies, (2) patient values and preferences, and (3) a clinician's expertise in making decisions about a patient's care. Being knowledgeable about evidence-based practice and levels of evidence is important to every clinician as they need to be confident when making these critical decisions.
