Providing high quality, safe clinical care involves assessing and adopting evidenced-based practice.  Healthcare quality professionals are integral in working with clinicians to identify and implement these practices in our own organizations.  Key to this role is understanding the published research and the impact on patient outcomes and care processes.  The three examples shared here present the clinical impact as well as the structure for ongoing measurement and communication of performance.
