Culture module: the 7 step process

Module 0: Creating a culture of curiosity (Step 0)

At the Ingram School of Nursing (ISoN) we have adopted the 7-step evidence-based practice (EBP) process proposed by Melnyk et al. (see Readings & Resources)

This module focuses on step 0 of the process: cultivating curiosity and creating a culture of evidence.

We created the diagram below to illustrate the 7 steps of EBP and highlights in orange what is unique to this 7 step process:

7-Step EBP process: a methodology & a framework

See the EBM, EBP, EIP, 7-Step EBP: what's the difference? tab to learn about the different models, from Evidence-based Medicine (EBM), to Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) to Evidence-Informed Practice (EIP) and finally to the 7-Step Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) process we are using today.
