EBP (evidence-based practice) encourages the provision of high-quality, equitable care. It is a process for resolving clinical problems that consider the clinical skill, patient preferences and values, and high-quality empirical evidence. The relevance of evidence-based practice was underlined in two key quality-related papers from the Institute of Medicine (Stevens, 2013). The paper stresses the requirement for training healthcare professionals to use evidence-based procedures in daily practice. Utilizing various strategies, create evidence-based practices open to all socio-demographic groups.
Techniques that Work for the Development of Evidence-Based Practices
Two strategies for developing EBP that specifically targets sociodemographic groups are creating a learning environment and training medical professionals. The importance of providing patients from various sociodemographic demographics with appropriate care utilizing multiple strategies, such as EBP journal clubs, should be taught and practiced by healthcare providers (Black, Balneaves, Garossino, Puyat, & Qian, 2015). To aid in implementing EBP, faculty members and EBP specialists should be included in the training program.
Consultation on research is an essential strategy for supporting EBP. The process includes discussions and collaboration with various healthcare experts who exchange knowledge and insight on improving the treatment provided to multiple patient groups. Association between clinical settings and research institutions must be begun to improve healthcare delivery. Healthcare organizations should create the conditions necessary for practitioners to have access to the tools they require to advance research and apply its conclusions (Black, Balneaves, Garossino, Puyat, & Qian, 2015). Additionally, they should assist and support staff members eager to apply evidence-based practices, identify roadblocks to implementation, and put in place crucial strategies to overcome them.
Discussion groups are another essential strategy that may be used to develop EBP in practice. Teams from multiple professions and wards should participate in the discussions to ensure that patients from various social, cultural, and racial groups may receive safe and high-quality care.
