BEST PRACTICE IS AN ORGANIZATIONAL CONCEPT AND IN THIS CONTEXT IS REFERRED TO QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS OVER TIME. IN THE HEALTH SECTOR ‘BEST PRACTICE’ SOMETIMES IS REFERRED TO DOING THINGS SMARTER AND PRACTICES THAT LEAD TO SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE AND EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE. THE EUROPEAN UNION HAS DEFINED BEST PRACTICE AS THE ‘BEST WAY TO IDENTIFY, COLLECT, EVALUATE, DISSEMINATE, AND IMPLEMENT INFORMATION ABOUT AS WELL AS TO MONITOR THE OUTCOMES OF HEALTH CARE INTERVENTIONS FOR PATIENTS/POPULATION GROUPS AND DEFINED INDICATIONS OR CONDITIONS.
