According to Hinkle and Cheever (2014), Evidence-based practice is not about emerging new knowledge or confirming existing knowledge. It is about interpreting the evidence and applying it to clinical decision-making. And clinical opinion validates existing knowledge based on a theory.
CC/HPI: Patient is a 26 year-old female who presents with frequent shortness of breath and wheezing. She reports experiencing shortness of breath 4 times a week and experiences nighttime awakenings twice a month due to her symptoms. Patient claims to use her Flovent inhaler one puff twice a day, less than her prescribed dose due to cost issues, and her rescue inhaler 3 times a week for when her wheezing is severe. Patient also presented with a persistent runny nose and itchy eyes starting 5 weeks prior. Her inhaler technique was assessed and deemed correct.
The theory of evidence based practice is not only an approach that targets for quality of patients but also highly improves the level of accountability in the health care sector by promoting a life-time learning process.

It was a privilege to work with Laura on a team rehabilitating a severely impaired brainstem CVA patient. She uses evidence based practice to modify treatment approaches to promote positive outcomes for both her patients physical needs as well as cognitive-communicative needs. A perfect example of this was scheduling her PT session prior to an SLP comm/cog session with increasing cardiovascular effort to promote improved cognitive
Evidence based practice is the act of incorporating clinical expertise, best research evidence and patient values and preferences in delivering care. This system, as opposed to previous methods that used the same standard of care for each patient, evaluates treatment plans based on research and the practioners own experiences. The usual workup of this type of practice is to ask a series of “why” questions and meticulously observe patient patterns to paint a better picture of the environmental factors surrounding the patient’s condition. This method advanced treatment modalities as practioners were able to better incorporate external factors in the assessment. Previous styles of care such as defensive medicine, forced providers to aggressively

In my opinion, to ensure that a treatment program is evidence based, a probation officer must know current “evidence-based practices” that already work in Probation and Parole supervision. They should have knowledge of evidence-based practices that apply to program providers, field officers, supervisors, and administrators. Ultimately, I believe that it is always necessary to improve one’s knowledge and skills, then apply them into practice, utilizing only what constitutes an evidence-based effective approach.
Evidence-based practice is an all-around systematic approach to patient care that was built up on research and proven treatment results within nursing in order to increase the patient outcomes. Evidence based practice is define as “the integration of current evidences and practices to make decisions about patient care”. (Medical Surgical Nursing, 2018). Evidence-based practice not only includes the best proven research for practicing patient-centered care, but also merges the patient’s preferences and values into consideration. EBP developed by incorporating scientific research with clinical experience and patient preferences in order to reach they highest form of care possible with modern mediction. Today,
In reviewing the literature, and the research guidelines as stipulated by the various authorities, including the NMC (2008:6) and other researchers ((Houser and Oman 2011), evidence based practice is regarded to be a critical in the evaluation and determination of the method of health care delivery. This is fundamental requirement as it ultimately promotes the knowledge and skills in nursing and the practitioners alike. Therefore, it is essential that appropriate skills are employed by informed judgements on various aspects concerning health. The evidence must be reliable and valid (Parahoo 2006) which in turn would promote credibility of the researchers and health professionals from the viewpoint of implementing best practice

Over the last decade, there has been a noteworthy change in the way that healthcare professionals use evidence from scientific research in their clinical practice. There has been plenty of evidence that a gap existed between research and practice. The concept of evidence-based health care has become part of the language of clinicians, managers, policy makers, and researchers in health services throughout the world. Though the notion of evidence-based health care is far from the new and the extent of its uptake in clinical practice is uneven, the diffusion and adoption of the ideas associated with evidence-based health care during the 1990s provide a remarkable testament to their power and their relevance to the current problems and challenges
I am working as a GP in a polyclinic situated in Jubail,KSA.Most of the patients attending here have a place with low financial status. I am discussing a case of cellulitis which fits the course of module and an incessant conference when all is said in done practice. I picked this case since cellulitis , as I would see it, shows a few difficulties as far as differential diagnosis and fitting treatment. My point in doing this contextual case study would be to basically assess my management of cellulitis and draw some learning focuses. The case is of cellulitis of the legs, which is the one we see all the more much of the time in primary care.
