Evidence-based practices (EBP) are becoming more and more important in health care services due to the increased demand for malpractice, improved health systems and increased demands for EBA.  In this study, it is aimed to determine the attitudes of health workers towards EBP. The study was carried out with 232 nurses, midwives and paramedics who were willing to participate in the study voluntarily and served in hospital clinics. The data collection form was distributed face to face and distributed to the participants and the answers were taken back in the same way. Descriptive statistics and parametric tests were used in the analysis of the data and the data were analyzed in the statistical package program and p <0.05 was considered statistically significant..As a result of the study, it was determined that the gender and the status of taking a research course changed attitudes towards EBPs s. For this reason, it is recommended that studies should be carried out in the curriculum about the EBPs s in education of health professionals, studies to understand the difference between the sexes, increasing the lessons about EBPs  and determining attitudes towards EBP.
