Evidence based practice (EBP) is the use of current best evidence in making decisions about patient care. It is a systematic, problem solving approach to a clinical question.
York College nursing students are actively involved in evidence-based care projects. They determine a clinical question, find the best evidence, appraise the evidence for quality and usefulness, and apply the findings to clinical practice.
Students in NUR 314 Nursing Research and NUR 440 Acute Care Nursing use the principles of evidence-based practice to determine best practices for clinical problems. Learn more.
Masters and doctoral students carry out an evidence-based practice project that utilizes health outcomes management concepts, organizational behavior, and systems change theory. Learn more.
