March 21, 2010, was not EBP’s date of birth, but it may be the date the approach “grew up” and left home to take on the world.

The Affordable Care Act included a requirement for empirical evidence when it was passed. EBP research has grown significantly. The use of EBP has spread to allied health professions, education, healthcare technology, and other fields. EBP was adopted and promoted by health organizations.

This adoption will be discussed in this Discussion. You will examine the websites of healthcare organizations and determine how much EBP is used by these organizations.

To Get Ready:

Investigate the website to see where and how much EBP is present.

the healthcare organization’s mission, vision, philosophy, and/or goals, or elsewhere on the website). Then, explain whether or not the work of this healthcare organization is based on EBP.

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.

Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
