Through GCU Library, you can get access to evidence-based practice (EBP) databases such as, the AHRQ: EPC Evidence Based Reports or, Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI). These will be important resources to conduct research for the capstone projects and associated assignments.
AHRQ: EPC Evidence Based Reports: The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Evidence Practice Centers (EPC) review all relevant scientific literature on clinical, behavioral, and organization and financing topics to produce evidence reports and technology assessments (GCU, 2016).
JBI EBP: A recognized global leader in EBP, and includes more than 3,000 records across seven publication types. These include Evidence Summaries, Evidence-Based Recommended Practices, Best Practice Information Sheets, Systematic Reviews, Consumer Information Sheets, Systematic Review Protocols, & Technical Reports (GCU, 2016).
Unfortunately, sources found on the internet lack quality control or assurance in that the information published may be questionable or of any quality. McKibbons and Marks wrote, that a systematic review identified 47 rating schemes for evaluating the quality of internet sites which provide health information, and all were incompletely developed and gave no information on test reliability and validity (1998). Because of this, it is very important to consider the source, and double check findings on the internet with reliable and reputable resources such as the EBP data bases as previously discussed.
