Using evidence-based practices means that we must first understand what the evidence is saying. Analyzing the evidence can seem difficult and daunting, but it doesn't have to be! In this program we will apply simple yet very effective tips for understanding a scientific study and explain some of the most commonly reported statistics in these types of research articles. Examples will be presented that demonstrate the importance of research to EVS and strategies to move published evidence into actual use in healthcare settings.


  •  Identify the basic structure of a research study
  • Explain common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid when reading studies
  • Describe the basic statistics used in research and how to interpret them
