Evidence Based Practice

Appraise the Evidence

After you have gathered your evidence, you need to evaluate the quality of  the studies. There are many tools available to help you answer the following questions: 

1.     Does the study/evidence address my question?

2.     Is the source reliable?

3.     Is the methodology sound?

4.     Are the results valid?

5.     Does the evidence apply to my patient or population?
