The Health Guardian must have a solid understanding of the Evidence Based Practice (EBP), the second objective of the Caregiving Department is providing a EBP foundation for making clinical decisions. This overarching view frames why rigorously following the steps of the EBP process is essential, clarifies misconceptions about implementing evidence-based care, and underpins practical action strategies that lead to sustainable evidence implementation at the point of care.
Preventive medicine can be categorized as primary, secondary, or tertiary. Primary prevention aims to remove or reduce disease risk factors and is the principle activity of the Health Guardian. Secondary prevention techniques promote early detection of disease or precursor states normally beginning with a holistic health assessment. Tertiary prevention measures are aimed at limiting the impact of established chronic disease through strategic lifestyle changes. At each stage, the Health Guardian may need to communicate with other Health Care providers following a credible protocol.
