Evidence-based practice(EBP)

Definition: [EBP] is about making decisions through the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of the best available evidence from multiple sources by
1. Asking: translating a practical issue or problem into an answerable question
2. Acquiring: systematically searching for and retrieving the evidence
3. Appraising: critically judging the trustworthiness and relevance of the evidence
4. Aggregating: weighing and pulling together the evidence
5. Applying: incorporating the evidence into the decision-making process
6. Assessing: evaluating the outcome of the decision taken
to increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome.
