What does research utilization emphasize? Translating empirically derived knowledge into real world application (applying the evidence, actually doing it)
Research utilization is often thought of as a what of EBP? And what does it focus on? Subset; it focuses on the application of research findings
What is the purpose of research utilization? The application of available knowledge to improve patient outcomes (ex: using proper protocols when inserting a foley to reduce risk for UTI)
What does EBP include in addition to research utilization? EBP also integrates clinical expertise with the best available evidence from systematic research
What does clinical expertise refer to? The proficiency and judgement that nurses acquire through clinical experience and clinical practice
