[Research Presentation] Evidence based practice (EBP) is a hallmark of quality healthcare. However, many organizations have policies and procedures in practice settings which are not based on evidence; rather, they are based on ôhabitö. One rural United States medical center sought to dispel the myths and traditions of ôhabit based nursing proceduresö, and to replace this with EBP. The resources that were identified to assist in this process included experts at the local state university which serves the western half of Kansas, and Nu Zeta, the local Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) chapter. The Chief Nursing Officer, president of the Nu Zeta Chapter, and the Nursing Dean (president-elect) recognized that infusing the ideology of EBP was a long term resource commitment for any organization. However, building on the knowledge generated from 3 successive collaborative EBP conferences hosted by Nu Zeta, the medical center, and the academic nursing department helped to conceptualize and organize a core group of interested parties and disciplines. The collaborative partners identified a goal of developing a culture of evidence in the daily practice of nurses and other disciplines. One short term goal was to create a knowledge foundation so that as the organization grew, EBP would flourish. The Nursing Dean identified two collaborative long term goals of preparing nurses for the 21st century, and providing an opportunity for faculty to pursue meaningful scholarly activity in an interdisciplinary environment. The Advancing Research and Clinical Practice through close Collaboration (ARCC) model was selected to guide the process. The status of this collaborative project will be explained in this session. In addition, suggestions to other collaborative partners desiring to implement EBP will be discussed.
