About the EBR Tool
Technological advances have changed how students and faculty access information.
Research suggests both groups may overestimate their research and critical thinking skills in acquiring and judging the trustworthiness of the scientific literature.
The EBR tool is designed to guide the user on how to do research about research. Completing all 10 steps in the EBR Tool will guide the user to formulate a researchable question, systematically search the peer-reviewed scientific literature, appraise the studies located, extract, analyze, and synthesize the evidence located to produce what is known as an “Integrated Research Review” (IRR) report. Many IRR’s are publishable and may significantly contribute to the diffusion of evidence-based practice to improve clinical care.
