Abstract:
Problem: Teaching nurses to critically and systematically review evidence to address clinical questions. Purpose and Evidence: CINAHL search addressing question of "Is there evidence to support the use of early warning scoring systems to guide nurses in clinical decision making and communication triggers?" Strategy and Methods: Educational sessions in which a bedside nurse paired with Clinical Nurse Specialist and Director of Libraries to review literature, collaborate with Nurse Researcher to weigh evidence, describe findings in conference setting (CEUs awarded). Nurse administrator described how evidence pertains to institutional practice. Clinically Appraised Topic posted on nursing website and disseminated information via nursing committees. Practice Change: Evidence does not support clinical trigger instruments. Rather, it supports the importance of knowing the patient/family and being able to recognize and communicate patterns of worsening clinical scenarios. Plans to mentor nurses in these skills and further investigate MD/RN communication are underway. Evaluation: Outcomes included formulation and dissemination of a clinical "bottom line", high levels of involvement in and satisfaction with the conference, changes to preceptor class. Conclusions and Recommendations: Quarterly conferences addressing clinical questions, led by bedside nurse and CNS, facilitated by nurse researcher and attended by wide array of nurses. Continue feedback regarding how the evidence based intervention will occur within our institutional culture.
