We deliver the best possible patient care when we combine scientific evidence, clinical expertise and individual patient needs, values and choices. These practices have scientific findings that demonstrate their effectiveness in improving the desired patient outcomes.
We listen to the patient. Their values are an important element in their treatment. We assess and understand their preferences and individual concerns and expectations.
Clinical knowledge includes the clinician’s experience, education and clinical skills.
It’s more than delivering a specific service, treatment or practice. It is the combination of proven-effective practice that is specifically selected for an individual patient’s needs at this point in their life. We take into consideration their unique characteristics, situation and preferences. This approach understands that all treatment must be individualized and ever-changing based on how the patient responds to the treatment.
The goal of Evidence-Based Practice is the integration of clinical expertise, external scientific evidence and an understanding of patient, caregiver values. This allows us to provide high-quality treatment and services that align with the interests, needs and choices of our patients. This will enable them to enter into life-long meaningful recovery.
