The Colorado Patient-Centered Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice Model: a framework for transformation
BACKGROUND: Evidence-based practice (EBP) models provide a framework to guide organizations and their clinicians to implement evidence-based policies, protocols, and guidelines. A historical review of evidence-based models is presented. The revised Colorado Patient-Centered Interprofessional EBP Model supports use of research evidence and nonresearch evidence and adopts a patient-centered approach to EBP.
AIM: The purpose of this article is to present a framework that can be used to transform an organization and foster the use of evidence by interdisciplinary team members.
