  5. 5. Evidence Based Practice<br />What is EBP?<br />Most commonly cited definition is “the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.”<br />Sackett, et al.<br />
  6. 6. Evidence Based Practice<br />The EBP Cycle<br />Identify/define the problem<br />Formulate a focused clinical question<br />Identify the appropriate resources<br />Search for valid and relevant information<br />Critically appraise/review this information<br />Implement in practice<br />Clinical audit<br />
  7. 7. Formulate a Question<br />Ask a focused, answerable question:<br /> NOT<br />Are febrile seizures in babies dangerous?<br />INSTEAD<br />Does a febrile seizure in a 6-month old infant increase the likelihood that s/he will develop epilepsy?<br />
  8. 8. Formulate a Question<br />What is the effect of [the Intervention or predictor variable]<br />On [the Outcome or given characteristic]<br />For [the group or patient characteristics]<br />
  9. 9. Formulate a Question<br />Use the PICO framework:<br />P – patient/problem<br /> I – intervention<br /> C – comparison<br /> O – outcome<br />
  10. 10. P<br />Population<br />Disease or condition<br />Stage of disease<br />Gender<br />Age group<br />Socioeconomic group<br />Healthcare setting<br />
  11. 11. I<br />Intervention<br />What is being done?<br />Drug therapy, surgery, radiotherapy<br />Level of intervention: frequency, dosage<br />Stage of intervention: prevention, secondary prevention; advanced<br />Delivery of intervention: self-medication, etc.<br />
  12. 12. C<br />Comparison<br />What could be done instead?<br />
  13. 13. O<br />Outcome<br />What happened to P as a result of I?<br />Patient oriented: quality of life; reduction in severity of symptoms; adverse effects<br />Provider oriented: cost-effectiveness<br />

  21. 21. Limiters<br />Parameters for your search <br />MEDLINE limiters include:<br />Age group<br />Publication type<br />Language<br />Dates<br />
  22. 22. Research Filters<br />Research filters are pre-designed search strategies<br />Clinical Queries<br />PubMed page:<br />Limiter in MEDLINE (EBSCOhost)<br />((clinical[Title/Abstract] AND trial[Title/Abstract]) OR clinical trials[MeSH Terms] OR clinical trial[Publication Type] OR random*[Title/Abstract] OR random allocation[MeSH Terms] OR therapeutic use[MeSH Subheading])<br />
