Abstract:
Developing Leadership Skills to Support Use of Evidence-Based Practice
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Cullen, Laura, MA, RN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
Title:Advanced Practice Nurse
Co-Authors:Marita Titler, PhD, RN, FAAN
Nurses have embraced evidence-based practice (EBP) to improve patient care.  Nursing leaders are responsible for guiding teams and mentoring colleagues through the challenges inherent in the process of building best evidence into daily practice.  The Advanced Practice Institute: Promoting Adoption of Evidence-Based Practice is an innovative program designed to develop leadership skills essential for guiding teams through the EBP process and building organizational capacity. Program Description: Program objectives are to develop leadership skills in using EBP models, to facilitate completion of a clinical project, and foster creative thinking for resolving issues inherent in the EBP process.  The three day intensive program provides an opportunity to learn from national leaders and trouble-shoot challenges using an interactive format to meet individual learning needs.  The program includes advanced content, with a toolkit supporting application.  Learning is facilitated through group discussion, facilitated work time, networking and consultation.  Content includes finding and synthesizing evidence, effective strategies for implementation and evaluation, and techniques for building an EBP program in their organization. Evaluation Results: Sixty nurses from across North America have attended since 2002 and evaluate the program extremely positively. 100% of participants state the program met their learning needs; several commented ?this is the best workshop I?ve ever attended.?  All are able to identify strategies for implementing EBP changes in complex health care systems (100%).  Participants are prepared to lead EBP initiatives within their organization (mean 4.6, 1= not at all to 5= to a very great extent).  Participants would recommend the program to other nursing leaders (mean 4.9, 1-5 scale).  One participant declared, ?immersion into the ?world? of EBP, the tremendous overview and detail gave me what I need to support my organization as it evolves in this excellent method of care delivery.?  The Institute supported development of many strong organizational EBP initiatives by attendees.
