The evidence-based activities

The evidence-based activities dominant in our area include infection preventionand control, oxygen therapy in people with respiratory infections and non-invasive measurementof blood pressure in children. It has spearheaded the Integration of proof with clinical skills; Factors like biological and socioeconomic matters are considered (Balakas, & Smith, 2016). The practitioners should also view the client’s preferences to help them make the appropriate decision. Evaluation of outcomes of the decision – The evaluation should be based on whether the expected goal is achieved, and if not, the practitioner should identify the reasons. Factors that could hinder the expected outcome include poor proof interpretation, non-adherence to nursing procedures, shortage of required skills, or an inadequate client prognosis.

Health consumers have greatly benefited from these practices through inclusion in theirown health care choices, providing the most effective care therefore resulting to improved patientoutcomes.

With the enhancement of EBP, there have been fewer cases of patient falls and pressure sores in healthcare facilities

Evidence based practices are health care practices based on the latest scientific researchand knowledge. Infection prevention and control is paramount n health care as it protects boththe patient and the heath care workers from an infection (Esfahani, & Maharati, 2015). Nurses play a key role in application ofinfection control evidence-based practices such as wearing protective clothing and using barrierprecautions to ensure the infection does not spread. Giving oxygen to COPD patients helpsprevent serious conditions such as organ failure and hypoxia therefore reducing the mortalityrates in these patients. Measuring blood pressure can be difficult in children as compared toadults, the non-invasive monitor is capable of producing accurate blood pressure results inchildren without much difficult. These practices provide the most effective care based onscientifically researched practices therefore improving patient care and outcomes.
