This presentation expands on evidence-based citations that support the Life Care Plan and its credibility. It will discuss what is evidence-based, what is current, types of research (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods), levels of evidence, and how to appraise evidence—the strength and number of research studies. It will also explore evidence for medical interventions and evidence for nursing interventions, and what to do if you can’t find any evidence. Citing reputable, credible evidence in chronic care will be discussed, as well as implications for NLCPs.
