The Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice to Promote Quality Care.

Author information

  • 1Department of Nursing Services and Patient Care, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.


The UIHC Department of Nursing is nationally known for its work on use of research to improve patient care. This reputation is attributable to staff members who continue to question "how can we improve practice?" or "what does the latest evidence tell us about this patient problem?" and to administrators who support, value, and reward EBP. The revisions made in the original Iowa Model are based on suggestions from staff at UIHC and other practitioners across the country who have implemented the model. We value their feedback and have set forth this revised model for evaluation and adoption by others.
