Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Purpose: The purpose of the study was to (a) Evaluate professional staff perceptions of EBP; (b) Determine differences in perceptions by those attending and not attending an EBP educational series; (c) Identify barriers participants experienced applying EBP into their practice. Sample/Method: 484 professional staff (32% of 1500 invited by email) responded to an anonymous on-line survey. 56 of the 484 (12 %) attended an EBP series which consisted of five interactive workshop sessions. Frequencies were used to describe all participants and Chi Square (p=.05) was used to evaluate differences among the two groups. Results: 94% of the survey participants indicated that they utilized EBP findings in their work setting. Attendees reported finding information from credible sources (librarian, bibliographic databases, journals or books or attends conferences or workshops) significantly (p< .01) more than their counterparts. Attendees also significantly (p< .01) sought this information more than weekly. Greater than 80% of the attendees identified and evaluated EBP activities and they were significantly (p = 0.1) more active in councils, committees, and journal clubs. Three primary barriers to use of personal research identified by nonattendees in rank order included: lack of understanding of electronic databases, difficulty accessing research materials, lack of critique skills. Conclusion: Professional staff understands the value of EBP but identified barriers to full implementation. Participants in the EBP series were significantly different in the positive ways identified. Implications for further education and research are explicated based on survey results.
