Question Description

Evidence-based practice (EBP) promotes the implementation of standards of care that are supported by extensive medical research.


In a minimum of 200 words, post your response to the following:

Write a post that explains the importance of following EBP in nursing practice, and describe at least two EBP models. Discuss the foundational premise behind each model, and describe barriers to implementing EBP. Refer to Chapter 15 in your textbook to find information about the EBP models and their barriers.

In your response, suggest ways that barriers to implementing EBP can be overcome in nursing practice. Try to think of solutions for overcoming barriers that were not presented in the textbook. When finished, compare your response with that of at least two other students. What barriers and solutions did they identify that you missed? Do you agree with their solutions? Why or why not?
