Evidence-based practice (EBP) refers to making decisions about patient care that are based on the best evidence produced by well-designed clinical research. Numerous studies have suggested evidence-based care of patients can reduce patient complications and decrease healthcare costs by as much as 30%. Obstacles to incorporating changes, such as those consistent with EBP, are present within every organization. Resistance from nursing leaders and other barriers prevent nurses from implementing EBP that improve patient outcomes. Please consider an institution where you are currently employed or one that you have worked with in the past. What obstacles are present? What can you do to confront and overcome these obstacles? Please provide an article about evidence-based practice to support your perspectives.
