Throughout health-care professions, evidence-based medicine or evidence-based practice progressively affects clinical decisions. Ideally, evidence-based practice integrates clinical research, clinical experience, and clinical practice to produce justified, coherent, and robust lessons for optimizing clinical decisions. Frequently, however, the process of integrating practice and research results in equivocal findings and highlights acute needs for clinical research by uncovering gaps in scientific evidence for supporting certain clinical decisions.
The fundamental goal of evidence-based practice is guiding the patient-care decisions of practitioners on the basis of the most relevant clinical information. Because patient care is not a single or whole process, but a series of informed decisions leading to certain actions, the basic unit in an evidence-based model is a specific clinical action that is particularized in terms of patient population, clinical outcome, instruments, and procedure. For each clinical action included in an evidence-based practice model, the body of relevant clinical research is examined for scientific evidence supporting that particular action.
