The merits of evidence based practice EBP in nursing care practice cannot be underscored and has the potential to improve quality of care and produce desired benefits for patients, nurses and midwives, and the health-care system. The purpose of this concept analysis was to clarify the concept of EBP to achieve a better understanding of the concept among nurses in relation to nursing care delivery and drive them to embark on EBP journey. The framework comprised of eight steps: selecting a concept; determining the aims or purpose of analysis; identification of all uses of the concept; determining the defining attributes; constructing a model case; constructing borderline, related, contrary cases; identifying antecedents and consequences; and defining empirical referents.
Create Account For: Author Editor. The concept of positivism is a phenomenon not necessarily utilized in nursing. The idea was promoted first by Auguste Comte but implanted in nursing by many philosophers. In advanced practice nursing, positivism can lead to science as the basis of practice without the inclusion of the art of nursing as a principle of practice. The practice of objective scientific knowledge alone may dehumanize nursing practice with the use only of the researcher and not the influence of the researcher and collected objective data.

Systems-Based Practice SBP is one of the six competencies introduced by the ACGME for physicians to provide high quality of care and also the most challenging of them in performance, training, and evaluation of medical students. This concept analysis clarifies the concept of SBP by identifying its components to make it possible to differentiate it from other similar concepts. System thinking and a functional system are antecedents and system goals are consequences. A case model, as well as border, and contrary cases of SBP, has been introduced. Also, it would be possible to develop and use more precise tools to evaluate SBP competency by using empirical referents of the analysis. Green et al. Competency-based education and these competencies have been used at all levels of medical education from undergraduate, residency, and continuing medical education and its importance has been emphasized 4.
