The purpose of this module is to give you greater understanding of the crucial role of evidence-based practice in clinical governance.
Evidence-based health care is the use of 'best' evidence to influence the decisions practitioners make when caring for patients. This evidence can come from research, clinical experience, personal knowledge, patient preference or a combination of any of these.
The goal of evidence-based health care is to promote safe and effective practice while improving practitioner confidence within a continuous learning environment.
This module explores the central debates and challenges surrounding evidence-based practice and helps you to examine the development evidence-based health care in relation to your own practice.
The module aims to:
- Enable you to search for and identify different types of evidence in the context of healthcare provision
- Equip you with the skills to critically analyse different types of evidence for relevance and quality
- Enable you to develop the skills to review and critically analyse evidence and its application to practice and policy development using a continuous process of reflection in applying this knowledge to advance their practice
- Enable you to complete an evidence-informed practice project relevant to your interests and practice setting.
