In health care organizations, Evidence-Based-Practice (EBP) are used for
problem- solving approaches for clinical decision making. This is linked to improved patient quality of care and outcomes with reduced cost of healthcare expenses. Evidence-based effect measurement is assembled into EBP to confirm and measure the importance of changes in nursing practice. According to Ackley, Ladwig, Swan, & Tucker (2008), EBP are discussed in the six step process. The first step in the process is asking the question about why we make changes. The second step in the process is to search for available best relevant evidence. The third step is thinking critically to evaluate the evidence. Step four in the process is to determine patient outcomes before and after change. The fifth step in the process is about making it happen. The sixth step is evaluating the process to determine if the change makes a significant difference. Using the EBP model is an essential way to confirm optimal patient outcomes and quality care. Evidence-based nursing practice gives assurance that nursing practice will be effective and increase your knowledge to give the best nursing care (Ackley, et.al, 2008).
below is my professor respond and I have to respond in that.
You mention in your first paragraph that the authors Ackley et al. identified six steps in the EBP process. Do you think there are any steps missing in this process or do you think the authors have identified all the necessary steps in the process?
