Evidence-Based Practice or Evidence-Based Medicine is the integration of best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values. (Sackett DL, Straus SE, Richardson WS, et al. Evidence-based medicine: how to practice and teach EBM. 2nd ed. Edinburgh: Churchill Livingstone, 2000.)
The Johns Hopkins EBP Model is designed specifically to meet the needs of the practicing nurse to ensure that the latest research findings and best practices are swiftly and appropriately incorporated into patient care.
The model uses a three-step process called PET: practice question, evidence, and translation.
