EBP refers to using the best available evidence for decision-making and providing efficient and effective care. Evidence-based practice is a conscientious, problem-solving approach to clinical or faith-based practice that incorporates the best evidence from well-designed studies, patient/client values and preferences, and a Practitioner's expertise in making decisions about a patient's care. It is a method by which Practitioners across the healthcare and faith-based professions review and assess the most current, highest-quality research to inform their delivery of care. Although there is no precise standard for what constitutes evidence-based practice in specialty training, the approach consists of three main components and five basic steps.


Best External Evidence
