Abstract:
Unlike large academic medical centers, community hospitals struggle with implementing evidence-based practice (EBP) and nursing research due to a lack of resources. Integrating EBP into daily work flow processes requires a cultural transformation of leadership and staff. A two prong approach targeting staff and leadership was used by this community hospital to build an infrastructure for EBP and nursing research. Methods to encourage staff in using EBP included: intensive education for EBP and Research Council members; creation of an EBP tutorial, search the literature class, and innovative competencies for clinical nurses; implementation of mentored EBP Internships; facilitated journal clubs; facilitation with the IRB process; inclusion of EBP in policies and procedures; and designation of human and material resources to support these activities. Recognizing that leaders are in the best position to advance their staffs use of EBP and research (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2005), a two phase funded research study between a School of Nursing and the hospital was conducted. Phase 1 consisted of an education program which included the use of case based scenarios requiring the identification, evaluation, and implementation of evidence-based solutions. Phase 2 involved the evaluation and assessment of nursing leadership and professional staff nurses beliefs, attitudes, and readiness for use of EBP. Findings demonstrated that exposure to active learning with EBP competencies and change processes had a positive impact on nursing leaders beliefs, implementation and readiness for EBP. For staff, the greater the number of exposures to EBP the more positive beliefs and attitudes were towards EBP.
