[Evidence-based Presentation] The purpose of the initiative is to foster collaboration between a university in the USA with a university hospital in China and further the knowledge of evidence based practice (EBP) in professional nurses and students in both agencies. Nursing students from Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) and nurses from the US health care agencies have collaborated on a similar long-standing initiative which uses the Stetler Model of Research Utilization. This project explores the applicability of using this collaborative strategy in another country, specifically China. Faculty and students from SVSU traveled to China in May 2006 and used educational based strategies to inform nurses about EBP. Nurses in China then identified topics for review. SVSU nursing students were given the clinical problems identified in China and selected and evaluated sources of evidence using an evidence rating system, summarized the results, and made recommendations based on the strength of evidence. Faculty traveled back to China to present the results in November, 2006. The nurses in China added input on fit of the recommendations to their setting, feasibility, and current practice. Throughout this project a Chinese nursing scholar-in-residence from this Chinese agency was available for translation and consultation to help inform the cultural competency of the project. This approach addresses the culture, capacity, and infrastructure within the agency, all of which have been identified as important in the promotion of EBP. This project has the advantage of helping hospital nurses in China keep informed on the nursing research literature. The US students see the relevance of the EBP approach to practice and also gain cultural competence. This project has the additional advantage of increasing global communication to improve nursing practice.
