The levels of evidence are assigned to studies in relation to methodological quality of their design, validity, and applicability of patient care. The levels of evidence range from level I, level II, level III, Level IV, and level V.
Use in Evidence-Practice
The classification of the evidence is done to ensure that researchers deal with cognitive errors that are bound to occur due to inferences made through various human observation methods. A key principle in evidence-based practice is based on the recognition of the fact the not all evidence is error proof. Evidence based practice refers to the clinical decision-making that depends on sound external research evidence combined with individua clinical expertise and needs of the individual patient. The goal of the evidence-based practice is to improve patient’s outcomes, quality of care and therefore achieve some standardization of treatment. This indicates the need of having quality evidence to inform the evidence-based practice. In this case it is important to establish the relevance and weight of evidence (Burns et al, 2011).
