Midwifery Module: Evidence Based Practice

MM15 01

Evidence Based Practice has been defined as: The conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. (Sackett)

There are three advantages:

  1. Better healthcare due to research.
  2. It lessens the "theory-practice" gap.
  3. High Quality Care due to the skills needed for Evidence Based Practice.
Critical Reading must be done so that the practitioner understands the strengths and weaknesses of the research report.  The report should be judged well--fairly, instead of harshly or excessively negatively.  In order to identify strengths and any limitations there should be an objective examination.

I'm sitting here correcting my work from Chapter 2 of my "Building a Medical Vocabulary" book.  I thought medical vocabulary was going to be hard!  But it is quickly becoming one of my favorite subjects to study and I'm delighted when I'm able to understand Latin medical terms! 

I recently able to put my learning to work when my family was at Seattle Children's Hospital last week.  First we found ourselves in the basement where they was the Psychiatry room....  then up high was the Neonatology area where we saw a precious, little baby be rushed by.

And this entire hospital is dedicated pediatrics.  Ped(o) means child.
