Evidence-based practice

"Evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing is using and carrying out nursing practices based on the best available knowledge. Evidence-based practice integrates the nurse’s clinical expertise with the best external research evidence, and takes into account patient preferences in order to deliver quality nursing care."

Victoria Schirm
Director of Nursing Research,
Penn State University
