Getting Started with EBP Literature


Because there is no single source for EBP on the Internet, the Lowell General Hospital Librarian has gathered many EBP sites together in once place for your convenience.

 This site uses the Haynes 5S Model to rank sites.  The pyramid was developed by Dr. Brian Haynes, a physician and researcher working at McMaster University, who articulated a method of categorizing EBP information by assessing its strength and weight of importance.
