• The 3 components of EBM are clinical expertise, scientific research, and patient values and characteristics.
• EBP helps to improve clinical decision making and provides answers to clinical questions that are based on the best available evidence.
• The 5 steps of EBP include developing a clinical question, conducting a search, critically appraising the research, applying the evidence by integrating the clinical bottom line with clinical expertise and patient values, and evaluating the effectiveness and efficacy of the clinical bottom line.
• The PICO method allows clinicians to frame a clinical question based on clinical characteristics so that the best available evidence will be located.
• The type of database used may depend on the type of PICO question being asked.
• Critical appraisal of the best evidence provides the information that assists in answering the clinical question and develops the framework for applying the answers to clinical practice.
• Depending on the type of article being reviewed, the critical appraisal will use different metrics to evaluate the quality.
• Based on the available evidence, clinician expertise, and the patient’s needs, the best treatment option is determined. A plan of care with specific patient outcomes will evaluate the effectiveness of the clinical intervention.
