Practice inquiry is an opportunity for providers to look for help from evidence-based resources when they are in doubt to learn new outcomes. Evidence-based practice (EBP) is the conscientious and judicious use of current best evidence in conjunction with clinical expertise and patient values to guide health care decisions. In some cases, however, a sufficient research base may not be available, and health care decision making is derived principally from nonresearch evidence sources such as expert opinion and scientific principles. My preceptor uses Up ToDate and Medscape to check evidence-based practices to be followed during patient care. She also uses CDC guidelines that are available online for recent guideline changes when she treats patients with STIs, travel-related vaccinations, immunizations, opioids prescription in chronic pain management. The electronic charting collaborate the progress notes of a patient from all providers, which helps them to review the past medical history.
