Abstract:
Evolution of one Nursing Departments approach of bringing research to the bedside through evidence-based practice (EBP) is described. Examples of shared governance processes and structures illustrate formalization and continued enculturation of research and scholarship into everyday nursing practice. The trajectory shows the growth of helping practicing nurses move beyond EBP and research as catchwords, phrases, and slogans to critically examining research and evidence for quality patient care. Roles that leadership and shared governance councils play in integrating research into routine nursing practice demonstrate that ongoing support is crucial. Projects conducted by Nursing Research and Education Councils working together to enhance and promote the scholarly practice of nursing are described. Outcomes from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved investigation that evaluated nursing and patient outcomes related to family visitation are presented as a case example. Council members will present the timeline of events for generating the clinical question, reviewing the literature, obtaining IRB approval, collecting and analyzing data, and disseminating results. Another example from an Educational Needs Assessment survey will show how data are used for professional staff development programming at unit and hospital wide levels. Nurse sensitive indicators and quality patient outcomes of program evaluations carried out in Womens Health and Oncology are used to illustrate nurses' involvement in translating evidence into meaningful use for practice. These initiatives make visible the evidence based best practices that have resulted in improved quality outcomes for nursing staff and patients. References: Melnyk, B.M., & Fineout-Overholt, E.
