Evidence-Based Practice In Clinical Care
Write a 7501000-word professional blog post (34 pages) for a student nursing Web site that examines how evidence-based health care leads to better clinical decisions and patient outcomes.
The nursing profession has changed dramatically in recent years. Professional references should be integrated to support perspectives in the blog. Today nurses are called upon to translate best evidence into clinical practice. In most health care settings bridging the gap from research to clinical practice is a dynamic ongoing process.
Florence Nightingale pioneered the concept of using research in nursing yet during the first half of the 20th century very little was done to advance this thinking. Since that time the nursing profession has diligently worked to improve patient care through the application of research findings or more commonly known as evidence-based practice (EBP). Evidence-based practice is the conscientious and judicious use of current best evidence in conjunction with clinical expertise and patient values to guide health care decisions (Titler 2008 para. 3).
