Abstract:
To promote nursing science and best practice at this NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) initiative was implemented by the Director of Nursing Research and Practice, with support of the Chief Nursing Officer. A Departmental Practice Committee was established with representation from all patient care areas, and its mission is to foster and guide EBP throughout the institution. The Ambulatory Practice Council was designated to develop and oversee EBP initiatives in the outpatient setting. Membership consisted of staff nurses with varying levels of professional experience. A Chair and Co-Chair were selected to facilitate group processes and report activities to the Departmental Practice Committee. Our goal was to educate nurses on the theory and application of EBP methodology so that our institutional guidelines and standards of practice reflected the latest scientific evidence. Educational methods included didactic lectures and individual guidance throughout project development. Four practice questions were identified as models for application of learning. The nurses were educated on framing the practice question, searching and analyzing the evidence, applying the evidence to practice and evaluating outcomes. Internal and external consultation with experts and development of partnerships with other disciplines was encouraged. The creation of a virtual office and utilization of centralized tools for reporting and presentation eased communication among the nurses. Mentors, including a librarian and research assistant were available. An evaluative measure of success was the completion of four EBP projects, demonstrating members' learning and competency. Nurses from each project were able to present their clinical question to various audiences. Project members indicated that the success of this EBP model was dependent on nursing leadership support and designated "protected time" for EBP activities. A survey of knowledge acquisition and satisfaction was performed and will be reported. Future educational initiatives will be based on survey analysis. Expansion of EBP methodology in this outpatient department will require reorganization of members throughout our council structure to allow experienced nurses to mentor other outpatient staff in the EBP process. This presentation can provide a demonstration for other oncology nurses on successful implementation of an EBP model of care at the bedside.
