NURS 350 Week 1 Discussion Post How does the focus of research and evidence-based practice (EBP) differ? Discuss the application of research findings into evidence-based nursing practice. Provide an example. According to Schmidt and Brown, evidenced based practice is a process of examining research findings and reliable evidence that has been discovered through scientific theories, and applying them to patient care whenever it is appropriate and/or necessary (2018). Evidence based practice can be obtained from studies that include randomized controlled trials, clinical cohort studies, case-controlled studies, and a meta-synthesis (Relias, 2017). Evidenced based information is based on ranges A-C, with A being the strongest and C being the weakest when referring to their reliability (Relias, 2017). The difference between evidenced based practice and research is EBP is used to analyze information in regards to making appropriate decisions in patient care, and research is used for identifying new knowledge that could possibly be used to support evidenced based practice (ANA, 2014).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
