Abstract:
Clinical/Evidence Based Practice: Changing from traditional intuition-based nursing practice to Evidence-Based Nursing (EBN) practice is necessary for improving patient care. We recognized in order to adopt this approach our unit-based staff/bedside RNs needed education and the opportunity to apply their new knowledge in a hands-on project. The institution-based Nursing Research Division developed a three-year EBN project including: one-day workshops for oncology nurses; unit-based project development and implementation; and long-term EBN project office follow-up and support. To increase EBN visibility and support the move to EBN practice, we created poster displays. Posters advertised the EBN effort within the institution; spotlighted unit projects; and acknowledged staff/bedside nurses who designed and implemented the projects. It was recognized while there were more than 30 ongoing EBN projects within the institution, only the staff, on units with ongoing projects, were aware of their existence and even then, some staff were unaware of their unitÆs project(s). After 10 EBN unit projects had reportable findings, posters were developed. The first poster display was presented in the hospital cafeteria during the 2008 Nurses' Week. Following the Nurses' Week display, the individual posters were displayed on the nursing units. A unit received one to two posters to display. The posters were rotated monthly, giving all the units time to closely view the individual projects. Poster visibility of the peer-initiated EBN projects has stimulated staff interest and engendered a sense of institutional support. Staff/bedside nurses are asking their unit managers and the EBN participants for more project information and how to get involved. An atmosphere of esprit de corps on unit teams is emerging. More staff have joined ongoing unit-based projects and EBN workshops enrollments have increased. Additionally, the multidisciplinary staff had the opportunity to view the posters resulting in a collateral benefit; during our recent JCAHO survey, the posters provided quality improvement data. By exhibiting posters throughout the institution, we have elevated awareness of ongoing EBN projects and acknowledged the individual oncology nurses and the units that initiated projects. The poster display is a practical and effective approach in increasing EBN visibility throughout the institution.
