[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Evidence-based Practice Presentation] An academic medical center in southeast Texas has demonstrated how its EBP model (Disciplined Clinical Inquiry-DCI ?) generated systems?- nurses?- patients?-centered initiatives that promoted practice changes grounded on evidence of efficacy and safety1.  This program largely attracted advanced practice and expert-level nurses.  The challenge was to reach the tipping point of EBP as the normative culture. Hence, the agenda was to develop a program that fosters sustained engagement of frontline nurses with diverse experiences and/or education.  A novel point of care inquiry process, called EBP Literacy, was incepted based on the conceptual framework, principles, and the decade-long experiences on the application of the DCI model. With the goal of incorporating evidence-based processes in nurses? daily workflow, EBP Literacy was pilot tested using a focus group approach. Three levels of evaluation were used: assessment of learning, case-based applications, and qualitative analysis of focus groups data. The major outcomes were: (1) integration of a newly developed team of EBP advocates who serve as role models with a previously established network of EBP Culture Keepers; (2) learning components with a menu of asynchronous learning pathways that match the requirements of nurses? level of practice; (3) visually re-formatted links dedicated for point of care applications; and (4) re-configured EBP competencies congruent with the expectations of the clinical ladder.  EBP Literacy offers a fresh approach to embed evidence-based decision-making in nurse?s daily workflow, a strategy with potential applications across settings.
