Running head: EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICES1Evidence Based Practices and Quadruple AimElizabeth EbolumNURS-6052A Walden University
EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICES 2Evidence Based Practices and Quadruple AimEvidence-based practices (EBP) has become a global term that stands for delivering high quality care to improve patient outcomes (Melnyk and Fineout-Overholt, 2018). The definition of evidence-based practice (EBP) is the employment of current best evidence to make decisions about patient care (Spyder, 2018). The surge in increased use of EBP can be found in the shift from reimbursement to patient care supported with the passing of the Affordable Care Act (Laureate Education (Producer), 2018). The critical elements of EBP are clinical expertise, current best evidence and patient perspective. The EBP process relies on scientific exploration and IT assistance in recognizing the question and solving the question to which improvements and guidelines are needed. At the same time the Quadruple Aim was developed to improve care. The elements of quadruple aim are the patient experience, population health, reduction of costs, and care team forwell-being.
