Practicing evidence-based medicine (EBM) is important in today’s health care environment because this model of care offers clinicians a way to enrich quality, enhance the patient experience, reduce wasted and harmful care and improve outcomes. A common implementation of EBM involves the use of clinical practice algorithms during medical decision making to encourage optimal care. This widely recognized practice is designed to address the persistent problem of clinical practice variation with the help of actionable information at the point of care. The goal of this series is to rapidly transition high-quality clinical research into daily practice and thereby reduce the delivery of low-value care, while enhancing the clinician experience. Current literature will be reviewed to enable health care professionals to put new EBM into practice.

This series is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, PAs, nurses, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals who have an interest in EBM.

Each activity is worth 0.50 to 0.75 CEUs.
