Evidence-based practice is the use of current, best evidence in making clinical decisions regarding individual patient care. Evidence-based practice integrates:
- The best evidence from well-designed studies.
- A patient’s preferences or values.
- A clinician’s expertise from evidence gathered from the patient’s data
Evidence-based practice helps you make informed and personalized treatment decisions and deliver high quality health care to your patients.
