it is a five-step approach to patient care that focuses on three main aspects:

  1. The best and most current available research
  2. Clinical expertise
  3. Patient values, background, and culture

It has a focus on lifelong learning and on patient-centered care.

Now is when everything other than the actual clinical research is taken into account.

Things such as: 

  • Patient background and beliefs
  • Circumstances and context
  • Available resources, own expertise, and budget

should all be considered before deciding on a course of action.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
