Evidence Based Practice Integration to Nursing Practice
Research using Cochrane Systematic Reviews or Guidelines from the AHRQ. This is the type of source/database you should use when asked to provide EBP or research. Explore the sites, look over an area related to Cardiac/ CHF or respiratory disorders that interests you and in 100 words, share an EBP intervention from the site that nursing could use and share a link to the article or guideline. Replying with EBP from the sites will count as one substantial post for the week.Link
