This Venn diagram shows the relationships among 5 concepts. Three circles in the middle of the graphic overlap with each other: 1) “Best available research evidence,” 2) “Resources, including practitioner expertise,” and 3) “Populations characteristics, needs, values, and preferences.” Overlapping these 3 circles and in the center is the circle “Decision-making.” This group of 4 circles is surrounded by “Environment and organizational context.”
