Abstract:
Evidence Based Practice: Creating and Using an Infrastructure
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001

Sound evidence is critical to informed decisions. Obtaining this evidence requires an organizational environment with guiding vision, enabling structures, and a supportive infrastructure. At West Park Healthcare Centre, teaching, research, evidence based practice, and evaluation figure prominently in the strategic directions, vision, and values. Organizational structures such as the Clinical Evaluation and Research Unit, Professional Practice Portfolio, and Corporate Performance Committee help generate information, monitor performance, and apply results to practice. The development of a supportive infrastructure has included information management, research, and decision support tools – all either implemented or in progress. Recognizing the need to understand data requirements before adopting electronic documentation, West Park analyzed its manual documentation, and is currently adopting a new transdisciplinary documentation system. This system includes a philosophy, care standards, clinical protocols, assessment parameters, documentation tools, and exception based methods. The development of clinical protocols is one way West Park has brought together the elements of its infrastructure to support evidence based decisions. Clinical protocols are excellent tools for integrating research into practice and assisting clinicians with decision making, but the challenge is successful implementation. West Park used the results of quality indicator data to identify priorities for improvement projects, which are carried out within an organizational performance improvement framework and supported by clinical protocols integrated into the new documentation system. Our presentation will provide an overview of how the development and implementation of documentation and clinical protocols supports evidence based practice.
