Abstract:
Purpose: Evidence-based practice and nursing research are thought to take place in university schools of nursing and large academic medical centers. And yet, many community hospitals are building infrastructures to provide the resources to make these activities possible. The purpose of this paper is to describe the process to promote the use of evidence-based practice. Three hospitals in different geographic areas (two in Maryland; one in Pennsylvania) and different sizes will be described. Theoretical Framework: Either the Johns Hopkins Nursing Model or Iowa Model for Evidence-based Practice have been adopted by three community hospitals in different geographic locations. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): Building an infrastructure for EBP and nursing research has been approached differently for three hospital systems. These hospitals serve the community and have various bed capacities (480; 277; 343). Methods to encourage the use of "best practices" have included: periodic lectures, mentored projects, journal clubs; facilitation with the IRB process; inclusion of EBP in procedures and policies; competencies for clinical nurses at all levels; and resources to support these activities. Results: Each hospital has demonstrated increased project involvement. Nursing researchers have been hired full or part time to support these activities. EBP and research has been disseminated by nurses at all three hospitals. Conclusions and Implications: EBP adds to the culture of critical thinking & ongoing learning for nurse clinicians. Three hospitals are growing an environment where evidence supports clinical and administrative decisions which build a community of scholarship.
