Abstract:
To quote Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Indeed, a small group of nurses can change the practice of many through enthusiasm and persistence. Historically, one nurse started an Evidence Based Practice (EBP) committee to revolutionize nursing practice in the PICU. Under the mentorship of the Clinical Nurse Specialist, several projects were implemented. The ACE Star Model of Knowledge Transformation guided the nurses through the process. With full support of nursing leadership, the nurses created a mobile in-service to take to each unit to introduce the concept of EBP. Once enthusiasm was established throughout the nursing units, the original PICU nurses spearheaded a one-day EBP Workshop. This workshop provided the tools to complete a unit based project. The 56 nurses in attendance received education on the foundation of EBP, how to develop a PICO question, how to search data bases, and evaluate the research literature. After hearing inspirational EBP practices completed by staff nurses within the hospital, the attendees had hands-on computer time to research their individual PICO questions under the guidance of the hospital Librarian. Following the workshop, each nurse presented their change projects to the nursing wide Research and EBP Council. As the nurses progress through their projects the Co-Chair of EBP provides guidance. After six months each projects outcomes will be presented at Nursing Grand Rounds. Never doubt that we can be the catalysts of change. Reference: Academic Center for Evidence Based Practice.
