The article focuses on the cultivation of evidence-based practice (EBP) among the health care professionals in the U.S. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) suggested that these professionals should be educated on the use of EBP to improve the quality of care for patients. It is a systematic approach determining the most relevant evidence for patient care decisions. It has been stressed that there are challenges that intervene with integrating evidence into practice in health care environments.
