Abstract

Essential Evidence Plus (EEP) is a point-of-care tool that was created to assist clinicians with evidence-based practice. According to the creators, the database was designed with the work-flow of health care providers in mind in order to facilitate clinical decision making [1]. It contains information on 9,000 common diagnoses and offers access to over 13,000 individual resources [1]. The intended audience is medical doctors, nurses, and any other health care providers that interact directly with patients [1]. EEP can, therefore, also be a valuable tool for pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and more. In addition, students in the health sciences as well as health sciences librarians can benefit from having access to the information that EEP provides.
