Evidence Based Practice

Evidence-Based Practice

Our nurses deliver unsurpassed care in an environment that continuously encourages them to apply evidence-based practice and science to their work. They are empowered to continue to achieve excellence in what they do through identifying solid research findings and implementing them in their practices.
At HackensackUMC, we follow the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model to establish and reinforce the translation of new knowledge and best evidence in all aspects of healthcare, namely clinical, education and administrative decision-making.

Shared decision-making is the primary structure that enables nurses to evaluate existing nursing practice based on evidence. Our Professional Practice Council (PPC) is responsible for evaluating existing nursing practice, policies and procedures based on evidence. We also offer a variety of other structures and processes that allow nurses to translate new knowledge into successful clinical practice. These include:

  • Educational offerings, library resources and programs
  • Mentorship and support
  • Access to our online Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Training Program
  • Multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary committees
  • Task forces, work groups, memberships in consortiums/collaboratives 
  • The Nursing Research and Innovations Council
  • Clinical Grand Rounds
  • Vendor education
  • Benchmarking
