[Evidence-based Presentation] Your mission should you decide to accept it is to transform the traditional Masters level nursing research course into a course with a focus on evidence utilization under the auspices of the current course objectives.ááThe mission was accepted, the course was redeveloped and has been offered and evaluated over an ensuingátwo year period.áThe overall goal of the transformed course was to provide students with the skills and opportunities to become evidence utilizers. The major thrust of the course was threefold. Students were first challenged to refine their abilities to search the literature, explore the available array of published health care research resources, and build a basic vocabulary of research terminology.áStudents then labored to develop skills to enable them to critically read and analyze research articles featuring a variety of quantitative and qualitative research designs.áFinally, students worked to identify and translate problems encountered in clinical practice intoásearchable andáanswerable questions.áImplementation protocols were then crafted from critically appraised research/evidence to resolve the identified clinical problems.áStudents used a variety of interactive and individualized approaches to tackle the tasks at hand. Initial anxieties and frustrations at embarking upon unfamiliar and scary terrain gave way to growing excitement as students identified and discussed actual clinical problems from their own nursing practices and set about the process of finding the best solutions. The value of being able to critically read and analyze the available literature became readily apparent as they searched for support of their proposed interventions to those identified clinical problems.áResearch became alive and relevant as students experienced first hand how to use that research to provide and support effective solutions to clinical problems. This presentation provides a snapshot of the process of transformation.
