The students must learn to find the best literature from huge and fast-changing medical databases and judge the credibility of data through reading processes strictly, provide the best clinical decision making based on evidence and achieve precision-nursing goals. The saying mentioned above is the same as Nursing 4E (i.e., Empathy, Efficacy, Evidence, and Evolution) for nursing developments.

The advisor who guided the students to participate in the competition of the Department of Nursing at AU, Li-chun Lee, said that in the student-guiding process, they were led to follow the competition step by step from discussing the topics and questions of the PICO approach, understanding the clinical problem, designing the research methods, determining the level of evidence, and searching strategies and techniques in the literature database, etc. The students who participate in the competition fully demonstrated their critical thinking, innovation, independent learning, and teamwork abilities in the process of conceiving and shooting short-films.
