[Evidence-based Presentation] Nurses in leadership positions have responsibility for leading evidence-based practice initiatives and need advanced skills to be effective.áEducational programs can help clinicians build essential skills for addressing the challenges of using evidence in practice.áContinuing education improves knowledge and attitude but has not always been effective at leading to changes in practitioner behavior or improving patient outcomes. Educational programs to promote development of advanced evidence-based practice skills must be interactive, application oriented and contextually relevant.áThe Advanced Practice Institute: Promoting Adoption of Evidence-Based Practice addresses the learning needs of nurses responsible for leading evidence-based practice initiatives. The Institute is a three day intensive workshop, promoting application of implementation strategies for an evidence-based practice project and organizational programs. Content includes managing the evidence, project implementation and evaluation, and techniques for building an EBP program within their organization. Over 250 nursing leaders from across North America have attended. Immediate post-conference evaluations are extremely positive.áKey reasons for the program's success include focusing on individual learning needs by keeping the participant groups small, use of dynamic and interactive learning, having a strong emphasis on application, learning from extensive clinical examples and having a large cadre of experts available as faculty and consultants.á Teaching methods used during the Institute likely promotes application of learning by participants following program attendance.áAn evaluation of the programs long-term impact is currently underway.áKey objectives for the evaluation include determining if participants completed the evidence-based practice projects initiated during the Institute; the impact of the participant's projects; participants sharing of knowledge gained from the Institute; participant's mastery of advanced skills for leading evidence-based practice initiatives; and, participant's ability to apply learning beyond the Institute.áEvaluation results will be reported with implications for education to promote development of advanced skills essential for leading evidence-based practice programs.
