Evidence-based Practice

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is integrated into the culture of MUSC Health’s nursing practice in several ways. For example, advancement on the clinical ladder requires a nurse to develop, implement and evaluate an evidence-based solution to improve patient outcomes or the practice environment.

In addition, evidence review is integrated into the development and revision of existing policies, procedures, and protocols. To support EBP MUSC Health provides access to current evidence through electronic databases and resources such as Clinical Key for Nurses. The organization also provides staff development opportunities at multiple levels to help nurses develop the skills needed to integrate current evidence in their practice.
