Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Background: Mentoring is recognized as an effective strategy for the transference of knowledge and skills to the novice, regardless of discipline or profession. While mentor characteristics such as teacher, coach, counselor, protector, and role model have remained constant throughout the ages, the focus of mentoring has changed. This change in focus from development of executive leadership roles to a current emphasis on evidence based practice (EBP) and research mentoring necessitates an effective approach for EBP mentor development. Methods: A six-member team of nursing leaders; 3 doctorally prepared and 3 masters prepared nurses formed an EBP mentorship steering committee and developed a mentoring process. The steering committee identified the necessary components required for development of an EBP mentor. Three workshops were designed with these constructs. Identification of potential mentors was determined by previous attendance to the semiannual hospital sponsored EBP program, subjective evaluation of knowledge of EBP process, and willingness to participate in mentor development. Each mentor was then paired with an EBP project either by request of its members or self appointed. Number of mentors, active EBP projects, and submitted abstracts for presentation were measured. Outcomes: There were 7 mentors, mentoring 38 EBP projects, and 14 abstracts submitted for national conferences. Conclusions: The frequencies of all outcomes increased with the addition of a mentor. The current trend suggests that an EBP mentor increases the opportunity for EBP dissemination.
