Abstract:
Ask the Expert is an innovative web-based service to promote clinical inquiry skills in nurses and to provide an interactive forum to address issues in the clinical practice arena. This presentation will highlight the work of an interdisciplinary team within the Nursing Research Council to develop, implement and evaluate the service. The team includes Clinical Nurse Specialists, staff nurses, a Performance Improvement Specialist and a librarian. The service was developed to address several key barriers to evidence-based practice (EBP) noted in the literature which are time, access and knowledge. Nurses access the service on the hospital intranet and review an educational presentation on EBP and how to form a searchable question. They complete a clinical question form and submit it electronically or via interoffice mail. The Ask the Expert team reviews the question and completes a literature search and critique. A response is sent to the nurse within two weeks which includes the searchable question, key search terms, databases, and a summary of findings and references. An evaluation form is sent with the response to determine if the information was useful and how it has impacted practice. Thirty seven questions have been received since implementation in 2007. Evaluations have been positive and led to practice change recommendations, evidence-based fact sheets and policy/procedure updates. Ask the Expert promotes the professional development of nurses by providing education on EBP to achieve improved quality outcomes.
