Evidence Based Practice

Research evidence to support the healthcare decision making process

Evidence Based Content

Evidence-based content such as systematic reviews, scoping reviews, literature reviews, and meta-analyses are at the highest level of research evidence to answer health research questions.

These analyses aggregate unfiltered information (such as original research studies) after critical appraisal and evaluation to recommend them for application in practice. In contrast, original research, while credible, scholarly, and often peer-reviewed, is unfiltered information that is not considered evidence-based.


Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) content incorporates valid research evidence in the decision-making process between healthcare providers and the patient. 

EBP is a three-pronged approach of: 

  • patient values
  • practitioner expertise
  • clinical considerations
