LUENGO MARTINEZ, Carolina  and  PARAVIC KLIJN, Tatiana. Professional autonomy: a key factor in the exercise of Evidence Based Nursing. Index Enferm [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.1-2, pp.42-46. ISSN 1699-5988.

This paper discusses the importance of professional autonomy as a key factor for the implementation of Evidence-Based Nursing (EBE). The fundamental role of the EBE is analyzed as a tool to improve the quality and safety of caring, improve outcomes and reduce costs. The professional autonomy, is what makes possible the application of knowledge generated through research, but it has been identified as one of the main barriers to the implementation of EBE.
