Step 1: Formulate Evidence Analysis Question
Analytic Framework to develop Questions for Evidence-Based Practice Guidelines
Why Ask Questions?
The amount of research in nutrition and dietetics is massive. Practitioners need a simple, reliable way to enhance their practice with the best available scientific evidence. What is the most effective and efficient way to sort through the ocean of research in order to develop evidence-based conclusions for practice?
Asking focused questions based on practical needs is one of the most effective ways to identify what research is relevant. By asking the right questions, dietitians can identify research that most effectively impacts their practice.
For the evidence analysis process, asking good questions makes clear the connections between scientific research and areas where evidence-based knowledge is needed for practice.
