Integration of evidence into practice and the change process: fall prevention program as a model.

Author information

Division of Nursing, Baystate Medical Center, Springfield, MA 01199, USA.


A Fall Prevention Program was initiated at an acute care academic medical center grounded on a dynamic evidence-based framework. Multiple sources of evidence were collected and integrated to engage clinical managers and staff in an evolving process designed to both reduce falls and enhance evidence-based thinking. Clinical practice now is based more frequently on evidence rather than ritual, unsystematic clinical experiences, or tradition. This article provides details on this replicable method of enhancing professional practice.
