Evidence Based Practice

The Office of Evidence Based Practice (EBP) at Children’s Mercy partners with clinicians and families to standardize our approach to patient care through Clinical Practice Guidelines, Care Process Models and Critically Appraised Topics.

Working with clinical subject matter experts, the implementation of care standards is analyzed through quality improvement metrics (process, balancing, and health outcome measures).

The Office of EBP work is supported by the EBP Scholars. The EBP Scholars analyze health care literature employing the international standards of the Cochrane Collaborative.
