Evidence Based Practice has many different definitions and in this essay the writer will be trying to identify what Evidence Based Practice is and why it is important for nursing practice. The writer will also explore whether there are any barriers in the implementation of Evidence Based Practice. Evidence Based Practice is a process which is generally used to describe research strategies. These research strategies allow clinicians to collate the most up to date knowledge, which enables them to make decisions about the care of individual patients. Evidence Based Practice is considered to be a useful approach in the improvement of medicine and health care provided to patients.
The concept of nursing as a discipline develops and enhance knowledge about human experiences through research and theories, which is the “scientific guide to living the art of nursing” (Parse, 1999, p.275). Nursing is viewed as a science and art, a profession and discipline (Selanders & Crane, 2012). Nursing as a profession has a social obligation to treat and provide healthcare to the public at times of health or illness and with modifications in diverse practice settings, “through living the art of science” (Parse, 1999, p.275; Hinshaw, 1989).

Having taken a similarly named course during my undergraduate career, I recognize how literature, fiction or non-fiction, can create a compelling narrative that draws us into the mind of the writer and the characters. Medically related narratives raise issues that we will be confronted with later on in our careers, such as the respective responsibilities of the patient and physician, the role of medical ethics, and the value of compassion and empathy. This program will help me to become a more reflective and empathetic individual that places the beliefs and comfort of the patient at the forefront of my professional practice, and can competently cater to the needs of a diverse
The science of nursing on the other hand is having the knowledge, skill, critical thinking and evidence-based practice integrated with nursing practice (Palos, 2014). With this concept, a nurse must have a good understanding of various types of diseases and be able to identify the symptoms associated with it. Medicine is an important part of science. Knowledge about the different drugs and knowing how to safely administer them are crucial in nursing care. Performing medical procedures and updating current nursing skills according to new evidence-based research is critical to achieve best patient outcome.
After taking Religion and Healthcare, I believe I gained a better understanding of the world around me in both, the healthcare setting and in a religious aspect. I think that the main ideas, skills, and information I have obtained through this course will be applicable to my personal and professional life. Understanding how mythic, symbolic, and ritual factors influence human experiences of suffering, health, and healthcare has definitely been a real eye opening experience. Understanding religion and how it does apply to modern and historic medicine is vital to the healthcare and religious communities. I believe, that regardless of your religious practices it is important to educate yourself on other religions so that as an individual you can reach out, relate, and support those with all different backgrounds.
This article expands on the Orem’s self-care deficit including spiritual self-care practices, using a study looking at the impact integrating spirituality has on the health of the patient. They found, “the use of spirituality self-care practices can promote quality of life through participation in interpersonal and intrapersonal activities that give meaning to life” (White, 2013). This is important to my PICOT because it shows the positive effects of spirituality on the quality of life the patient can have with it included versus the outcome without it. The final article is Spiritual care at the end of life, written by Wynne. Wynne looks at how health care professionals should include spirituality especially in palliative care because it
