Reading Hospital Nursing – Achieving Excellence in a Patient First Environment

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) and Research

Our nurses base practice on best evidence and contribute to the generation of new knowledge through nursing research. They use The Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model as the framework for EBP, and are supported in advancing evidence-based nursing practice through the EBP internship and clinical librarian and library database resources. Our nurses are also supported in EBP and research activities by the Director of Nursing Research and the Organizational Nursing Research Council. Nursing research is conducted in collaboration with Reading Hospital's Office of Research.
