- Implementing evidence into practice. Woods AD. Nursing. 2013 Feb;43(2 Suppl 1):4-6. doi: 10.1097/01.NURSE.0000426539.59569.f2. PMID:23328746.
- The Point of Care > The need-it-now moment where Providers only have 30 seconds to 2 minutes to search for an answer with a patient in front of them. Examples of tools are UptoDate, DynaMed, Nursing Reference Center, Lippincott Procedures … They need the synopses and best evidence in bulleted easy to read formats. Illustrations and videos are helpful.
- The Point of Reference > This was the standard approach 5-10 years ago, where information supports clinical care. But it takes longer to search for an answer this way. This is the classic Library model that covers example tools such as PubMed, CInahl, eJournals, eBooks, Cochrane, etc. Deeper info – Info for quality improvement efforts, or for updating policies and procedures.
- The Point of Learning > to maintain licensure or learn something new. CEUs and CMEs.
