Abstract:
PURPOSE: Evidence Based Practice (EBP) is a process being utilized by nurses to facilitate clinical decision-making based on their clinical expertise, patient population preferences, and the best available research. Evidence Based Practice Workout Sessions were designed and provided to educate nurses on; what is EBP, how to integrate EBP into practice and how to communicate that to nursing peers. Description: Evidence Based Practice (EBP) was new terminology for many of our nurses in the patient care areas. A committee was established with the purpose of identifying and coordinating the implementation of EBP within the facility. The goals of the committee were to educate the nurses on EBP and to provide adequate resources to research EBP. A number of initiatives were started to enculturate EBP but the most effective became the EBP Workout Sessions for the Chairs of the Unit Practice Councils. The EBP Workout Sessions were designed with a "starting from scratch" mentality. The first session focused on; what EBP was, including didactic information, a few examples of what one unit had already implemented, and what EBP should look like in the rest of the facility. At the end of the first session attendees brainstormed EBP ideas that they would like to investigate within their specialty. They were then challenged to research and scope the topic and then explore implementing within their unit. Subsequent workout sessions included one-on-one coaching of desired EBP topic with a clinical educator. Laptop computers to research topics were available as well as support from members of our Clinical Informatics team for technical and research guidance. Members of our Performance Excellence department were also available to offer tools and resources in data collection. The sessions were well attended because there was time allowed for the staff to ask questions, review policies, and search for information at work. A total of four sessions (16 hours) were held over eight-months. EVALUATION: Each nursing unit did poster presentations featuring their project at the facility's "Journey to Excellence" celebration. Forty-seven (47) posters were presented and over 750 staff and physician's attended the exhibit. Twenty-nine of the 47 posters were on Evidence Based Practice issues. Eleven of those 29 units had implemented their findings and continue to collect data!
