1996 saw the implementation of Clinical Effectiveness Initiatives by the NHS Executive and the Royal College of Nursing to promote the use of evidence-based care..
This paper examines whether or not nurses will be encouraged and facilitated by these initiatives to provide evidence-based care for their clients..
Both initiatives appear to assume that the use of evidence-based care leads to improved client care, but several issues are raised which still need to be resolved before this assumption can be made..
The NHS Executive advocates the use of randomized controlled trials as the method of choice for providing evidence of clinical effectiveness.
However, this may not necessarily be the best methodology for some areas of nursing practice..
The paper concludes that the Royal College of Nursing's Clinical Effectiveness Initiative has great potential to provide the necessary motivation and facilitation, providing other professional issues are resolved.
