CHOC Best Evidence and Recommendations

Best Evidence and Recommendation (BEaR) Statements from CHOC EBP Scholars

Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a dynamic process of integrating research, credible sources of knowledge, clinical expertise, and patient & family preferences and values to achieve optimal patient outcomes, enhance practice, and manage health care costs.

The CHOC nursing EBP scholars program is a formal 6-month program that consists of monthly meetings with expert academic faculty. Scholars receive education about the EBP process and guidance in completing a literature review and analysis. The ultimate goal of the program is to translate research (and other sources of evidence) into practice to enhance patient outcomes. By the completion of the program, scholars develop a Best Evidence and Recommendation (BEaR) statement to disseminate their findings and share practice recommendations based on the best available evidence.
