Abstract

Evidence based practice (EBP) can be
incorporated into the curriculum of Medical Laboratory
Science (MLS) Programs. Current components of
curriculum can include EBP in pre-analytic, analytic,
and post-analytic topics. Discussion of EBP topics in
the classroom using practices assessed through the
Laboratory Medicine Best Practices Initiative
(LMBP™) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention will give students a clear understanding of
EBP and how it is used in the clinical laboratory for
improved health care quality. Student involvement in
Quality Improvement projects to improve laboratory
performance and patient outcomes can be developed
through capstone projects. Examples of clinical projects
and application of EBP into the MLS curriculum are
discussed.
