Why is understanding the health care system at the local level important to consider when planning an EBP implementation? Conduct research and solicit anecdotal evidence from your course mentor that youwill take into consideration for your own change project.When planning an EBP project one must consider the health care system where they want it to beimplemented. For example, what kind of resources will be available and is the health care systemready to implement a new EBP project. Looking within the local level helps to identify needs that will benefit the patients the healthcare system supports. EBP can address problems identified to the local health care system and will use current clinician’s expertise and will take into account patients values and preferences (Bardsley, Eich, Esche, Kropkowski, McLaughlin, Risch & Warren, 2016). On the local level, some health care systems do not have librarians to help RN’s with research for EBP, so this is a major consideration.
