Both international and national nursing organizations emphasize “Evidence Based Practice” as the standard for nursing practice. According to the International Council of Nurses (ICN), closing the gap between evidence and action requires stronger emphasis to be placed on implementing strategies to translate knowledge to action. Implementing best practice guidelines is one of the key strategies for integrating the best available research evidence into nursing practice thereby enhancing the quality of patient care.
