Evidence-based Practice approach is the using of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient.
- Convert need for information into focused clinical question (PICO format)
- Track down the best evidence
- Critically appraise the evidence
- Integrate evidence with clinical expertise and patient values (making decision or answer question)
