The Stetlar Model of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP): Hypertension
The Stetlar Model of EBP outlines five phases, preparation, validation, comparative decision-making, application or translation, and evaluation, followed in utilizing research in EBP change. The following is a mini-EBP practice change project for implementation in LirnCare hospital to relieve the burden of hypertension, which is the most prevalent condition recorded in the community.

Current practice focuses on communicable diseases while limiting prevention and treatment of non-communicable diseases. In LirnCare community environment, many patients suffering from hypertension present with loss of productivity and deprived quality of life. Therefore, there is a need for EBP change in the healthcare setting to reduce the rates of hypertension and suppress the adverse consequences to population’s lives.
