Evidence-Based Practice Network

 

Translating Evidence into Clinical Practice

Why should we, as healthcare providers, use evidence-based practice? Evidence-based practice:
  • Leads to highest quality care and patient outcomes
  • Reduces health care costs
  • Reduces geographic variations in the delivery of care
  • Increases healthcare provider empowerment and role satisfaction
  • Reduces healthcare provider turnover rate
  • Increases reimbursement from 3rd party payers
  • Reduces complications and payment denials
  • Meets the expectation of an informed public
Use the following articles and CE to help you implement evidence-based practice in your clinical practice. We've organized the content by topic so you can easily find the evidence you need.

Cardiovascular Care

Pulmonary Care
