Evidence-Based Practice: Clinical Colleagues as a Source of Evidence

Clinical Colleagues

Evidence-based practice is the intersection of clinical expertise, research evidence, information from the practice context, and the patients values and circumstancesUp to now we have concentrated on published sources of evidence, mainly as reported in journal articles and available in databases and other online sources.

Clinical colleagues and peers can be another source of evidence.

Don't forget that the process of evidence-based practice involves combining the best research evidence with clinical expertise. This clinical expertise might be your own, but also might be that of colleagues and peers with whom you work or associate.
