Interpretation
Recommend
The practice should be identified as a best practice for implementation in your care setting. This recommendation results from consistent and high or moderate overall evidence of effectiveness strength rating of desirable impacts.
No recommendation for or against
The potentially favorable impact on care outcomes and error reduction is not sufficient, or not sufficiently supported by evidence to indicate that it should be identified as a best practice for implementation in your care setting. Additional studies may be warranted to strengthen the relevant evidence base. This recommendation results from insufficient evidence to determine effectiveness.
Recommend against
The practice should not be identified as a best practice for implementation because of consistent and high or moderate overall evidence of adverse effects.
