One of the most important goals of health care professions
today is to improve patient care by changing practice through research. Research, evidence based practice (EBP) and
quality improvement (QI) are all problem solving approaches that may impact our
future practice, but each has a different purpose.
- Research generates new knowledge
- Evidence based practice translates knowledge
- Quality improvement incorporates knowledge
Both the novice and expert bedside clinician may utilize all
of these approaches during their career.
