Evidence-Based Practice

Ask the Question = Identify

The first step of the evidence-based practice (EBP) process is to Ask the Question. This aligns with the Identify step in MUSC's IMPROVE model.

  • Problem Statement: for an existing process or service you want to improve or change.
  • Opportunity Statement: for when you want to create a new process or service.
