The purpose of this presentation is to propose a model for evidence-based public health nursing. The need for the use of evidence in nursing practice has been well documented over several decades. The extent to which evidence is systematically incorporated into public health nursing is not known. Rogers' theory of diffusion of innovations guided the study. A descriptive design was used. The proposed model was based on survey results from 36 (80%) of the 45 Michigan local health departments (LHDs). Twenty-seven (75%) of the 36 respondents indicated that they use evidence in their services and programs. Survey respondents identified many sources of evidence for policies, procedures, guidelines, and protocols e.g., Michigan Department of Community Health, Centers for Disease Control, and literature. Results revealed that the sources of evidence for pubic health nursing services and programs may be categorized into three levels: national or federal level, state level, and local level. Thus, the Tri-Level Model for Evidence-Based Public Health Nursing was initially developed. Participants' responses point to the need for local public health nursing services to become more knowledgeable about evidence for nursing services and how to use evidence at the local level. Almost 64% of the respondents indicated interest in learning more about evidence-based public health nursing. Only one respondent described a process used to incorporate evidence into services and programs. Some respondents stated that they did not always know if guidelines from sources outside the agency were based on evidence. The Tri-Level Model for Evidence-Based Public Health Nursing needs to be further developed, tested, and refined to become a useful tool for improving the quality of public health nursing services. The investigators acknowledge the Michigan Nurses Association for providing the funding for this study. [Poster Presentation]
