Abstract:
Statement of the Problem: Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a paradigm shift that has been identified in health care as a vital tool for research utilization. The impetus for incorporating evidence-based practice into nursing care must begin with the education process. Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to explore methods of integrating EBP into nursing curriculum that will ultimately enhance the link between research outcomes and application to every day practice. Significance and Justification: As an educator, the CNS provides clinical expertise and is equipped with the knowledge to bridge research outcomes to guide every day patient care. One of the priority goals of evidence-based practice is to educate nurses to advance the profession by disseminating research findings to improve patient outcomes. Practice Innovation: In the past, nursing research findings have not been adequately utilized as a basis to guide nursing practice. The challenge for educators is to make the topic of research "come alive" in the classroom so students will have a desire to seek research outcomes for answers to questions in the clinical setting. Methods: Teaching EBP is actually a problem-solving skill that integrates literature searches, evaluation of research findings, and utilization of unique interventions to improve patient outcomes. Evaluation: The health care environment itself has an immense influence on nursing education. The responsibility in health care today is to continually validate the care and interventions implemented for patients. The utilization of research findings from EBP will support the momentum of improved patient outcomes and savings in medical costs. Implications for Practice: Evidence-based practice is the future of the nursing profession. Utilizing findings from research can have a direct impact on the way health care is delivered. Clinical Nurse Specialists are a vital link to implementing research findings to improve patient care outcomes.
