Evidence-Based Practice

Evidence-based practice is the foundation of nursing; it provides standards of care that utilize the best and most current information for patient populations. I am currently learning how to search for the best evidence using a variety of reliable databases such as CIINAHL and PubMed. It is important to understand the credibility of various websites and how to critique research. With this knowledge, I have the ability to provide competent care to my patients, and assess the need for changes in institutional policies. I have obtained certification in "Protecting Human Research Participants," which helps me understand the importance of safely performing research without inflicting harm to populations at risk.
