Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a process that incorporates the best available medical evidence to improve the daily practices of physicians and patient care. Our goal was to develop strategies to increase EBP in Cuenca, Ecuador. To accomplish this goal, we interviewed and surveyed physicians from the US and Ecuador to identify current usage of EBP in their medical centers. Our research with Cuenca doctors showed that EBP was limited primarily due to a lack of necessary resources. We used our findings to create recommendations to help medical professionals and administrators in Cuenca hospitals to adapt EBP into their daily activities and draw attention to the lack of EBP resources.
