Abstract:
Evidence is not always used in practice and there are identified barriers of implementing research into practice. One innovative approach to facilitate the translation of research into practice is developing an evidence-based practice (EBP) fellowship program that allows staff nurses to focus on a clinical issue of significance to their practice and change practice on evidence. This session will describe how a hospital-based EBP fellowship program was developed, from its inception to completion. Resources, including criteria for the EBP fellow, tools used to advertise the program and for evaluating applications, curriculum for classes (including developing a PICO - patient, intervention, comparison, outcome) question, conducting and evaluation of the literature, and measuring outcomes will be described. Mentorship by clinical nurse specialist (CNS) will also be explained. Leadership support, CNS mentorship, and selection of the EBP fellow was imperative to the success of this program. The EBP fellows became strong advocates for using evidence as a basis for practice. Additional professional opportunities for the EBP fellows included presentations of both the program experience and their clinical issue. Supporting staff nurses in an EBP fellowship experience is one of the innovative approaches to create an organization where the best evidence is the foundation of all practice. The fellowship program helps create a culture promoting EBP by nurses questioning their practice and receiving support to address their questions; it is empowering because it engages staff nurses in the decision-making process and base their practice on the best available evidence.
