This Nursing Reports Special Issue on “Evidence-Based Practice and Personalized Care” will focus on these two topics by bringing together experts who present research in these fields.
The main goal of evidence-based practice (EBP) is the optimization of healthcare based on the integration of clinical expertise, patients’ values, and well-thought-out quality of scientific evidence that is followed in a clinical setting regarding a disease or a condition by all the medical professionals, including nursing personnel.
On the other hand, personalized care (PC) is considered to be an inevitability for health providers, as it aims to provide the best therapy per person or optimized for a group of patients with similar characteristics (stratified medicine). EBP and PC as complementary terms aim to the integration of best practices, based on the recent research evidence and the individual patient’s characteristics to improve the quality of healthcare, and ensure health promotion.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Epidemiological studies concerning quantitative or qualitative design investigating evidence-based practice and personalized care approaches in healthcare
- Studies on the topic of health professional’s education regarding EBP and PC are also welcome
- Studies investigating nurses’ and health professionals’ in general and EBP competencies
- Studies investigating nurses’, and health professionals’ in general, and competencies in the field of precision medicine and PC
- EBP intervention studies and innovations to health promotion and quality improvement
- Studies and manuscripts highlighting future directions for these subjects are strongly encouraged.
We also welcome high-quality systematic/scoping/narrative reviews related to these issues.
