March 21, 2010, was not EBPâ€s date of birth, but it may be the date the approach â€œgrew upâ€ and left home to take on the world.
When the Affordable Care Act was passed, it came with a requirement of empirical evidence. Research on EBP increased significantly. Application of EBP spread to allied health professions, education, healthcare technology, and more. Health organizations began to adopt and promote EBP.
In this Discussion, you will consider this adoption. You will examine healthcare organization websites and analyze to what extent these organizations use EBP.
Â· Review the Resources and reflect on the definition and goal of EBP.
Â· Choose a professional healthcare organizationâ€s website (e.g., a reimbursing body, an accredited body, or a national initiative).
Post a description of the healthcare organization website you reviewed. Describe where, if at all, EBP appears (e.g., the mission, vision, philosophy, and/or goals of the healthcare organization, or in other locations on the website). Then, explain whether this healthcare organizationâ€s work is grounded in EBP and why or why not. Finally, explain whether the information you discovered on the healthcare organizationâ€s website has changed your perception of the healthcare organization. Be specific and provide examples.
