Identify the specific EBP aspects you wish to evaluate. For example, does the organization use evidence-based practices or promote the use of such guidelines? Then, find healthcare organizations by searching for hospitals and healthcare systems within a particular region or by selecting a medical speciality.
After you’ve identified possible organizations, visit their website and search for information on clinical practice, patient care or quality improvement. On their site, look for guidelines and protocols that have been proven to be effective. Look at whether or not the website provides research references and links to resources that are evidence-based.
Look for quality metrics and performance data reported by the organization. Measure outcomes related to EBP use, like readmission or infection rates.
By analyzing the websites of healthcare organizations and evaluating how they implement EBPs, you will gain an understanding about the importance that these organizations place on the implementation of evidence-based practice to improve outcomes and patient care.
