Ongoing calls for EBP projects
Discover all current calls for EBP projects.
Evikey – a network of centres of expertise and health care providers – aims to improve quality of care for patients and practitioners through an approach known as Evidence-Based Practice (EBP).
Practitioners in eleven health care professions are currently involved – general practitioners, dentists, dietitians, occupational therapists, nurses, physiotherapists, speech therapists, pharmacists, podiatrists, psychologists and midwives.
Evikey and its partners not only train health care providers in EBP, they also study and expand on existing data, assess long-term effects, and develop strategies to facilitate the application of scientific and medical knowledge.
EBP is an approach that aims to improve the quality of health care.
It combines practitioners’ expertise, patient values and the best evidence from clinical research in a given social context.
More specifically, the EBP approach helps health practitioners make decisions by applying the best available data.
Core Partners have a scientific coordination role within the EBP life cycle.
The EBP life cycle is a systematic, scientific, 6-step process to develop, implement, and assess the impact on daily practice of EBP products, for example guidelines.
Specific examples of multidisciplinary projects aim to raise awareness of EBP among practitioners and to anchor it in practice.
These are development or implementation projects.
Evikey also publishes calls for EBP projects.
David Lawrence Sackett, McMaster University, Canada, 1996
EPB is “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient.”
