Abstract:
Implementing evidence-based practice (EBP) on busy clinical units is a significant challenge for nurses in community hospitals, which often lack the resources to build an infrastructure that promotes EBP and nursing research. This presentation will describe the process to promote the use of EBP in one community hospital setting where a system-wide commitment has been made to strengthening nursing research and EBP. A hospital-wide EBP/Nursing Research Council was developed using the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model. The Council sponsors a monthly 4-hour meeting that includes an educational session, a house wide-journal club and open consultation. With only a limited number of mentors available, it continues to be a challenge for individual service lines and units to adopt EBP. This presentation will show how these activities are mirrored on a maternal newborn and gynecology unit. Strategies used on the clinical unit include: periodic lectures, mentored projects, journal club, facilitation with the IRB process, inclusion of EBP in policies and procedures, competencies for clinical nurses at all levels, and resources to support these activities. Four projects will be highlighted: preventing postoperative urinary retention after uro-gynecologic surgery, skin-to-skin care for thermoregulation in full-term neonates, caring for the late-preterm infant on a mother-baby unit and management of hypoglycemia in the newborn. Implementing a change in practice, evaluating the change, and disseminating the findings will be emphasized. Bedside nurses have found the Johns Hopkins EBP Model to be an informative, non-threatening process for reviewing and understanding the literature, and translating evidence into practice.
