Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model

2017 JHNEBP Model

The Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice (JHNEBP) model is a powerful problem-solving approach to clinical decision-making, and is accompanied by user-friendly tools to guide individual or group use. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of the practicing nurse and uses a three-step process called PET: practice question, evidence, and translation. The goal of the model is to ensure that the latest research findings and best practices are quickly and appropriately incorporated into patient care.

2017 Model and Tools | JHNEBP Book- 3rd Edition

On October 20, 2017 the third edition of Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice: Model and Guidelines book was published. This fully revised third edition builds on the strength of the first two editions with updated content based on more than a decade of the model’s use and refinement in real-life settings. With the revision of the book, the conceptual model and tools were also updated. Existing tools were modified and 3 new tools were added which address: analysis of the stakeholders, implementing and tracking the action plan and the active dissemination of the EBP findings. These changes were designed to help make the EBP process easier for practicing nurses.
