Abstract

Evidence-based practice at the point of care gives advance practice registered nurses and their patients immediate access to the most current evidence and research-backed information to treat the specific issue or health concern with which the patient presents. Patients without current complaints, but with questions and concerns can receive education regarding current preventive guidelines and recommendations for many illnesses, such as diabetes and obesity. Because nurses are the primary patient educators, advance practice nurses are in a unique position to impart diagnostic, treatment, and preventive education that may otherwise go unsaid.
