During the 1980s, the term “Evidence-based medicine” emerged to describe the approach that used scientific evidence to determine the best practice. Later, the term shifted to become “evidence-based practice” as clinicians other than physicians recognized the importance of scientific evidence in clinical decision-making.
Evidence-based practice helps nurses provide high-quality patient care based on research and knowledge rather than because “this is the way we have always done it,” or based on traditions, myths, hunches, advice of colleagues, or outdated textbooks.

Key words: Evidenced based practice, Barriers, models
