Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice Series | 2022 Edition

The model and tools featured in this course are based on the 4th edition of the JHEBP Model and Guidelines Book released in 2021.

The Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals Model is a powerful problem-solving approach to clinical decision-making and is accompanied by user-friendly tools to guide individual or group use. 

Feedback from a wide variety of end-users, both clinical and academic, informs the continued development and improvement of the Johns Hopkins Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Model. The recently revised model and tools draw attention to the value-added contribution of EBP as an interprofessional activity to enhance team collaboration and care coordination.
