Innovation for Improved Practice (eviden...ce-based health care)
Added: 02/08/2009
This Chapter discusses how by 2002 information overload and nihilism had become a very real problem for all types of practitioners. The Institute recognised that it was not enough to provide and technology for researchers; clinicians and students also needed these facilities. As the evidence-based approach gathered momentum and the volume of information intensified, it was clear that clinicians also needed to understand how to evaluate the quality of evidence. The evidence-based movement was dictating that practice be supported by evidence; a new skill base was required within the industry that would break down the barriers between science (research) and applied science (practice). Critical appraisal was becoming a vital component of health care practice if clinicians were to become more effective decision makers in practice.
