evidence-based practice

the practice of health care in which the practitioner systematically finds, appraises, and uses the most current and valid research findings as the basis for clinical decisions. The term is sometimes used to denote evidence-based medicine specifically, but can also include other specialties such as evidence-based nursing, pharmacy, and dentistry.
