Abstract:
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine select nurse attitudes, knowledge, and utilization of evidence-based practice (EBP) before and after participation in a unit-based, professional journal club. Data Sources: This quasi-experimental, descriptive design incorporated data collection pre- and post-journal club intervention via the Clinical Effectiveness and Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire (EBPQ). This tool assessed select nurse attitudes, knowledge, and utilization of EBP. The power analysis ( of 0.5 and power of 0.40) projected a sample size of 26 bedside nurses. Conclusions: There were 29 pre-EBPQs and 28 post-EBPQs completed. The pre-EBPQ mean scores included: 5.05 (attitude), 4.03 (knowledge), and 3.63 (utilization). After bedside nurses participated in a professional journal club orientation and two journal club sessions, the post-EBPQs were completed. The post-EBPQ mean scores included: 5.69 (attitude), 5.12 (knowledge), and 4.08 (utilization). The paired t tests and Pearsons r established statistically significant correlations, as well. Cronbachs alpha for the pre-EBPQ was 0.96 and post-EBPQ was 0.94, both statistically significant. Implications for Practice: The statistical analysis found select nurse attitudes, knowledge, and utilization of EBP significantly improved after participation in this unit-based, professional journal club. The literature supported that appropriate utilization of EBP by nurses is vital to providing cost effective, safe, and up-to-date patient care, as well as facilitating the scientific growth of the nursing profession as a whole. As a cost effective and well accepted approach, the unit-based, professional journal club may serve to foster the EBP process and facilitate bridging the research and practice gap, among bedside nurses.
