      • By the end of this presentation you should be able to :
      • describe evidence-based practice
      • explain why it is important
      • and outline the five steps of EBP
    • 3. Definition
      • “ the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values”
      • Sackett DL, Rosenberg WMC, Gray JAM, Haynes RB, Richardson WS. Evidence based medicine: what it is and what it isn’t. BMJ, 1996;312:71-2
    • 4. What is EBP?
      • Evidence based practice is the integration of:
      • Best evidence
        • clinically relevant, methodologically sound
      • Clinical expertise
        • education, experience, clinical skills
      • Patient values
        • Preferences, concerns, expectations
    • 5. Why is EBP important?
      • Provide quality patient care
      • Meet specific information needs
      • Select clinically relevant and applicable research
      • Reduce implementation delays
      • Keep knowledge correct and up-to-date
      • Satisfy purchasers
    • 6. How do we do EBP?
      • Formulate an answerable question
      • Finding the best available evidence
      • Appraise the evidence
      • Apply the evidence in combination with clinical expertise and patient values
      • Evaluate outcome
    • 7. Formulate an answerable question
      • Triggered by patient encounters
      • Relevant to your practice
      • A well built question makes the search for evidence easier
    • 8. Find the best available evidence
      • Identify search terms
      • Select a resource
      • Formulate a strategy
        • Search each important concept separately
        • Combine the separate sets of articles
        • Limit the results
    • 9. Appraise the evidence
      • Appraise for Validity and Applicability
      • Use a simple critical appraisal method that will answer these questions:
        • What question did the study address?
        • Were the methods valid?
        • What are the results?
        • How do the results apply to your practice?
    • 10. Apply the Evidence
      • Integrate the evidence with clinical expertise and patient values
      • Incorporate this clinical decision into practice
      • justified as evidence based
    • 11. Evaluate the Outcome
      • Was the application effective?
      • Should it continue to be included in practice?
      • How can my clinical decision making process be improved?
    • 12. Keep it simple
      • Keep a log of questions
      • Answer a few a week
      • Get help with searches
      • Simplify appraisals
      • Focus on interpreting the evidence
    • 13. Summary
      • Simple 5 step process
      • Patient focused questions
      • Plan searches
      • Appraise evidence
      • Apply
      • Evaluate outcome
      • Continuous patient care and clinical practice improvement
    • 14. The Big Picture
      • Building a question
        • PICO questions
        • Type of question
        • Type of study
      • Search strategies
        • MESH terms
        • Combing results
        • Limiting results
      • Critical appraisal
        • Validity
        • applicability
