A team of two librarians and an instructional designer developed two hour-long online learning modules to familiarize students with EBP
principles and basic literature searching techniques.
This maybe due to a lack of understanding that conventional EBP
does in fact consider clinical expertise to play a fundamental role in clinical decision making.
Stronge and Cahill (2012) surveyed OT students in Ireland who were in the last year of their OT program (n = 111) and found that 40% of the students did not observe EBP
In total, nine clinicians were interviewed at the end of the observational period to further explore clinicians' experience of implementing EBP

The purpose of this study was to explore nephrology nurses' beliefs about the value of EBP
and their ability to implement EBP
into clinical practice.
Studies have been conducted that have attempted to assess the knowledge, attitudes and utilization of EBP
principles and the impact education has in acquiring those skills.
However, the impact of these important initiatives is dependent on whether or not EBP
principles and tools such as CPGs are routinely applied in clinical practice.
In some cases, more training is needed to ensure an understanding of the policies and procedures that lead to a successful EBP
Medical-surgical nurses have had varied exposure to EBP
and research depending on where and when they went to school and the culture of their practice environments.
For example, the 2003 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report Health Professionals Education: A Bridge to Quality states EBP
is a core competency for healthcare professionals, and IOM's 2010 landmark report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health confirms EBP
as a basic competency.
is a core competency identified by the Institute of Medicine.
To bridge the gap between research and practice, it is emphasized that EBP
can contribute to: developing clinical practice guides, updating knowledge, developing nursing as science, improving the credibility of nurses as autonomous professionals, improving health results of patients and limiting health costs, and using in timely manner results of updated and reliable research to improve the quality of healthcare attention.
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) asserts the ability to employ EBP
is one of the five core competencies that all medical professionals should have (Practice Update, 2010).
In addition, the partnership between New York State and the EBP
Bioscience Manufacturing Center builds upon the state's ongoing effort to pursue and improve access to renewable energy.
