Learn More About the Principle of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) with New Resources from ONS

PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, July 14, 2021 / — Nurses and other healthcare providers at the point of care use evidence-based practice techniques to ask and answer clinically relevant questions to promote quality, safety, and improved patient outcomes. Evidence-based practice is the process of shared decision-making that incorporates the best available evidence, clinical expertise, and patient preferences and values.

ONS is pleased to release curated resources to help nurses and other healthcare providers learn about and use evidence-based techniques and tools in their practice. The following resources can now be found in the ONS Evidence-Based Learning Library:

• Introduction to Evidence-Based Practice Course

The library will continue to grow as additional resources are available.
