Why is Research Important?

Clinical research helps us create and improve the technologies, drugs, procedures, treatments, interventions and processes we use in practice every day. Behind everything we do, there's a trail of evidence supporting the reasons we do it. 

Research, combined with the patient’s experience and the clinician’s expertise, guides us in evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP is something we all do. It allows us to provide the best possible care to our patients and their families. In other words, research as a foundation for EBP helps us all achieve the ARHS mission to "improve the lives and health of those we touch."
