Evidence-Based Practice Models
The ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation:
The Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice to Promote Quality Care: http://www.nnpnetwork.org/ebp-resources/iowa-model
The two Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) models above are excellent examples and can work in any student or nurse's practice setting. The first one, the ACE Star Model of Knowledge Trasformation, is a more simplistic, straight forward design of how the EBP process works. Any student or nurse could start with the first point of the star, Discovery Research, and work through the model to effectively find quality EBP to integrate into their every day use. The second, more complex model is the Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice to Promote Quality. Using this process, a student or nurse can take the EBP they have researched to management and thus assist in presenting change and innovation in the clinical care setting that in turn will increase positive patient outcomes.
