Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Developing systems that support the infusion of evidence into bedside practice is challenging. In a unique role developed at a large pediatric hospital, Evidence-Based Practice Mentors engage healthcare professionals in the Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) process at a systems level. Development of processes, resources and tools is essential to begin and sustain a culture of evidence. Strategies to support development of a culture of evidence include the organization of a multidisciplinary team co-led by a nurse and physician. This macro system level team consists of nurses in the role of evidence-based practice mentors, a librarian, nurse educator, and guideline administrators. Work of the team focuses on developing a standardized process for evaluation of evidence. Tools developed to achieve standardization consist of evidence appraisal forms, a process to level and grade evidence and a guide for forming a recommendation. In addition, an evidence website and evidence summary document has been developed. At the meso system level, a formal evidence-based practice program has been developed. This program is open to all nurses and allied health professionals eligible to apply. Selected participants engage in evidence work for one year that addresses a clinical issue of importance at the micro system level. Direct outcomes of the systems-wide evidence approach include sustained involvement of staff in the formal evidence program, professional development, publications, and presentations. Additional outcomes include development of evidence-based policies and procedures, implementation of safety recommendations related to use of radioisotopes in pediatric patients experiencing seizure activity and consistent publication of evidence summaries.
