Journal Club Handouts

Below is a list of articles authored by Dr. Fineout-Overholt, Dr. Melnyk, and colleagues. The series has been provided to supplement your learning during the full day EBP workshop on Day One (April 21, 2015), where you will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to integrate EBP and develop projects in your clinical setting. Each article provides a step by step problem-solving approach that incorporates the best evidence, clinical expertise, and patient preferences and values. The series builds logically to provide you with the information needed to ensure that the best evidence is a standard of your clinical practice in order to drive higher quality care, patient safety, and clinical outcomes.
