“Laura Cullen and colleagues provide a highly pragmatic framework for organizations wishing to enhance the evidentiary basis for creating practice policy. This innovative text provides a comprehensive reference list for each step of the EBP process as conceived by the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). Each phase is accompanied by specific steps of what to do and how to do it. Learning from the extensive experiences of UIHC will facilitate the EBP journey for novice EBP practitioners.”
