The purpose of this assignment is to critically appraise a gap between research findings and the implementation of those findings into practice.
In 2009, upon noticing a dearth of evidence-based decisions in health care settings, the Institute of Medicine set a goal to substantially increase the number of clinical decisions supported by timely and relevant evidence over the following decade.

Relying on the best evidence allows health care practitioners to deliver quality and appropriate patient care while helping to improve the nations health.
