Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Scholars Program was designed to enable staff to conduct extensive evaluations of existing literature in order to improve pediatric patient care. The development, implementation, and lessons learned from this program will be shared. ABSTRACT: The concept of evidence-based practice (EBP) has continued to evolve in the nursing profession as the basis for clinical decision-making. Despite the evidence to support this practice, few nurses at the bedside have received instruction on how to develop a clinical practice question using evidence-based practice skills. The EBP Scholars Program was designed at a Midwest pediatric hospital to teach EBP skills to enable staff to conduct extensive evaluations of existing literature to improve pediatric patient care. The program provides a comprehensive overview of EBP and essential components necessary for implementation of EBP in a clinical setting. The first course was launched in the fall of 2007 graduating 13 scholars from multiple areas of practice. Eligible staff nurses were nominated by their managers to participate in the 6 week program consisting of lectures, discussion, library sessions, and oral presentations. Each scholar was paired with an EBP mentor to help facilitate and guide the student through the learning process. The development, implementation, and lessons learned from an innovative EBP scholars program designed to empower nurses to improve patient outcomes will be shared. A program initially designed to engage nurses in a clinical decision making process has evolved into an opportunity to become a vehicle for change and professional growth.
