Tschannen (2004) studied collaboration and teamwork among healthcare professionals and found that the collaborative process resulted in positive patient outcomes, including a higher level of patient well-being and less fragmentation of care.
Research based on scientific proves are used to form health care policy which can be implemented to improve the health of the community. It also helps in harnessing the knowledge gained in the research into practice of quality care. It helps to practice ethically and professionally ensuring that all actions are supported and can be verified by any healthcare professional.

Robinson et al. (2002) mentioned that APN with wide knowledge in disease progress, research, health promotion and prevention of major illness who are keen to share knowledge to patients will help patients to understand more about their conditions. Koh and Ang (2005) states that with comparison to the doctors, the APNs are more likely to spend extra time to educate patients on health promotion and life style changes and are proven with better compliance with treatments. Karnusammy (2006) also mention that in addition to educating the patient and nurse, the APN also actively involve with patients family and initiating discharge. Nurses will also gain more knowledge and build a positive relationship with the APNs.
Evidence-based practice specifically focuses on a holistic approach that encompasses clinical expertise, patient values, and the best researched evidence to improve patient care outcomes. As healthcare trends change to comply with the adoption of enhanced technology, compliance of government healthcare reimbursements, and higher quality care, strong leadership and continued research is needed (Huber, 2014). Nurse leaders have the vital, but sometimes challenging duty of promoting evidence-based practices in a usually complex healthcare setting. Not only should the nurse leader gather clinical data that may help improve patient outcomes and nurse practices, nurse leaders should also encourage a work environment that is open to the change that results from evidence-based practice discoveries. Through the development of a building-block approach, nurse leaders can promote evidence-based practices by incorporating the process in every aspect of the healthcare structure they supervise.
Abstract:The modern ICU generates large volumes of complex and multimodal data. Interpreting and utilizing this information is challenging for the ICU Physician. By enhancing the ICU Clinical Decision Support System its outcomes in critical patients will be improved by providing real-time decision support, decreasing medical errors, and minimizing life-threatening events caused by delayed or uninformed medical decisions. In addition to basic patient demographics, pre-existing comorbidity data, and medication usage, it also emulate more event categories such as nurse-verified chart events, laboratory tests, and fluid balance records. For making critical decisions, these events based categories with event duration are more helpful.
