Abstract:
Among all health care disciplines, the value of basing health care practice on high quality evidence is unchallenged. However, due to wide variation in educational programs of recent RNs and high numbers of experienced nurses without education about evidence-based practice (EBP), many nurses do not know how to engage in this practice. The EBP Council at a comprehensive cancer center accepted the challenge and planned mandatory EBP education for all RNs. The goals of the program were to: 1) support a culture shift from "tradition" toward EBP, 2) educate nurses about EBP principles, 3) increase nurses' comfort accessing EBP resources, and 4) incorporate evidence into clinical practice. A four-phase educational program began in January 2006. In Phase I, a nurse educator presented an overview of EBP including basic principles. Embracing EBP includes the development of a new skill set. In Phase II, EBP Council members conducted an interactive guided poster presentation of five EBP nursing projects. Small groups of nurses gathered around each poster; council members used a question- answer approach to conduct discussion of each project. In Phase III, librarians introduced nurses to EBP resources such as online search engines and taught principles of conducting a search using nursing examples. In Phase IV, groups of nurses will conduct unit-based EBP projects, with all nursing staff encouraged to participate. To assist the units, guidelines are available; EBP Council members will assist with projects. Topics will be identified by January, 2007 and completed by April 2007. Posters will be displayed in April and May 2007. Attendance at mandatory sessions is being computed. Education on demand or by taped-video sessions will ensure that future nursing staff will be brought up to date. Criteria for evaluation include the number of clinical areas and the number of nurses on each shift who participate. Evaluation criteria for posters will include formulation of a search question, evaluation of level of evidence, and integration into clinical practice. The challenge to shift our nursing culture from "traditional" to EBP was exciting. We look forward to evaluating the impact on oncology nursing practice and patient outcomes in the coming year.
