Evidence-Based Resources

What is evidence-based care/practice?

 Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing defines evidence based nursing practice in their Evidence-Based Nursing Position Statement, as "an integration of the best evidence available, nursing expertise, and the values and preferences of the individuals, families and communities who are served.This assumes that optimal nursing care is provided when nurses and health care decision-makers have access to a synthesis of the latest research, a consensus of expert opinion, and are thus able to exercise their judgment as they plan and provide care that takes into account cultural and personal values and preferences."
