                        Evidence Based Practice (EBP) in Quality Improvement

Evidence-based practice alludes to assimilating the best available investigation evidence, which is the clinical know-how and the clients’ values, to enhance the outcome. The utilization of the evidence-based practice comprises asking the relevant clinical questions, determining the best evidence to answer the question, and applying the evidence to the nursing process. In all levels of care, the nurses are involved in asking and answering focused clinical questions, which are primarily aimed at improving patient outcomes (“Evidence-based practice: Principles, procedure, strategy and proof,” n.d). 

The EBP practice is playing a fundamental role in allowing the nurses to formulate clinical questions, which are essential in identifying existing challenges, accumulation of definitive research evidence, breaking down the evidence, applying this evidence in the clinical intervention, and adding evaluation of their impact on quality improvement (Jolley, 2020). Some of the metrics that can be used in the review include the rates of readmission, mortality, satisfaction scores, among others, as evidence of whether the EBP is leading to improvement or deterioration in the quality-of-care services.

There are multiple ways in which the evidence-based practice applies to the improvement of the nursing services in the organization in which I work, including offering the best possible care services to improve patient’s experience. The evidence-based practice will also ensure continuous updating of the nurses on emerging medical protocols for the client’s care (Manivannan, 2016). The EBP is used in determining efficiency or ineffectiveness of processes such as prescriptions, electronic health records and other techniques based on their impacts on metrics such as readmission, mortality rates, patient feedback and others while unearthing areas of weakness for continuous quality improvement in the health care service delivery.
