Evidence-based practice is now universally acknowledged as a critical component of enhancing healthcare quality and patient outcomes. It is a problem-solving approach that incorporates best practices from the most recent medical literature, clinical experience, and the values and preferences of the people being treated. Despite the fact that the goals of nursing research (generating new knowledge) and evidence-based nursing practice (using best evidence as the foundation of nursing practice) appear to be quite different, an increasing number of research studies are being conducted with the goal of effectively translating evidence into practice. EBP gives nurses the tools they need to become change agents for better healthcare outcomes since it is an empowering approach to care. Nurses who use EBP become the link between a wealth of medical knowledge and real-world experience. They can standardize care, reduce medical errors, and make a positive difference in the lives of their patients, communities, and the world.
