Abstract:
Once the nurse understands the process of EBP, the challenge is to be able to interpret the results of clinical and professional studies and then use the results in practice. One barrier is the fact that many nurses have not been taught clinical epidemiology, the foundation for interpreting EBP results. This session will introduce the APN to concepts of clinical epidemiology that will help them interpret the results from clinical research. Content for this session will assume a basic understanding of the EBP process and will include an introduction to clinical epidemiology and information for understanding and interpreting commonly used statistics reported in clinical and professional research (i.e., odds ratios, relative risk, effect size) for use in practice. Examples from published research will be integrated throughout this session. CNSs will benefit from this content by becoming more comfortable with the statistics reported in clinical research studies and this knowledge will increase their ability to explain EBP statistical results to their colleagues and staff to facilitate the translation of research and evidence into practice. Participants will leave the conference with practical knowledge they can use in practice and an up-to-date bibliography.
