EBP in 6 Steps
The process of EBP described in the medical literature is composed of 5 steps (Sackett et al., 1996; Strause et al., 2011). In the nursing literature the steps are similar, but an additional step for dissemination was added by Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2011):
Ask a clinical guiding question.
Search for teh best evidence.
Critically appraise the evidence.
Integrate the evidence with one's clinical expertise and client preferences to make the best clinical decision.
Evaluate the outcome(s) of the EBP practice decision or change based on evidence of the EBP decision or change.
