Title:Geriatric Clinical Nurse Specialist
Using evidence-based practice (EBP) as a basis for clinical decision making has been reported as a critical competency needed by all healthcare professionals to improve quality and safety in health care environments (Greiner & Knebel, 2003). Bringing EBP to the bedside nursing staff in acute care hospital settings remains a challenge due to multiple staff barriers. Some of these include varying levels of awareness, time pressures, and little or no formal education in developing evidence-based knowledge and competencies. Also, the hospital culture can present roadblocks to adopting an evidence- based practice problem solving approach as a standard of practice. This presentation discussed evidence on the use of the advanced practice nurse as EBP Mentor and champion. This is one strategy for building a hospital EBP culture and increasing nursing staff competencies. Development of the EBP Mentor role within an existing Clinical Nurse Specialist position was described. A link between the EBP Mentor role and the concept of clinical scholarship was made. Clinical exemplars that illustrate the multiple mentored experiential learning opportunities that were initiated were presented: Conducted EBP Rounds. Role modeled the process of conducting an evidence-based practice review for stroke rehabilitation clinical pathway development with an interdisciplinary team. Implemented a quality improvement initiative to building a hospital-wide pressure ulcer prevention program facilitating staff nurse participation in data collection and measurement processes and development of EBP/nursing research competencies. Developed a hospital wide evidence-based Magnet NICHE geriatric program of care with bedside nursing staff and an interdisciplinary team. Additional implementation strategies that supported frontline nursing staff and interdisciplinary team members were discussed.
