Evidence-Based Practice Network

Translating Research into Professional Practice

Professional practice based on evidence improves healthcare practice, improves patient outcomes, and lowers healthcare costs. An environment which supports evidence-based practice is essential to your professional development. Whether you are in a position of leadership making decisions about implementing evidence-based practice or a clinician looking for employment in an institution that supports evidence-based practice, be aware of the following measures which support evidence-based practice:
  • Proper tools and resources, including evidence-based journals and databases
  • Adequate numbers of computers throughout the institution with intranet and internet capability
  • Clinical systems that incorporate EBP information
  • Clinical practice policies and procedures based on evidence
  • Journal clubs
  • EBP rounds.
Take some time to read the articles in this collection, Translating Research into Professional Practice, to help you gain a better understanding of evidence-based practice and continue on your professional journey.
