It is defined as a “problem-solving approach to clinical decision making within a healthcare organization that integrates the best available scientific evidence with the best available experiential evidence” (Hain & Kear, 2015, p. 2). Applying evidence based practice into our daily nursing practice can improve the quality of care of the patients. Likewise, it is a way of providing a high quality of care to patients that enhances the patients’ outcomes.

To prepare myself for this project, I will use articles and journals from trustworthy websites using the Kaplan library. On my second week, I will gather more information about evidence based practice viewpoint and usefulness. I would also like to find methods on increasing the evidence based practice use in the clinical practice on my week three. Then I will find out the effectiveness of evidence based practice and how it improves patients’ outcome on my week four. On my fifth week, I will identify the strength and barriers when implementing EBP to ensure its effectiveness. On my sixth week I need to find a strategic plan to improve the adherence of EBP in the clinical settings. On my seventh week, I would like to study how education plays an important role when implementing evidenced-based practice, so the healthcare staff can continue to support the new thinking and ideas. On my eighth week, I will gather information about evidence based practice that has worked from the past. Lastly, I will summarize all my gathered information on my week ninth to finalize my poster
