Abstract:
PRESENTATION: The movement to base health care practices on actual evidence has been gaining momentum over the past several years and has reached a point where it is expected that practices be based on the best possible evidence available. When a situation occurs for which there is not much validated evidence, nurses are encouraged to initiate research projects to develop more scientific data to support care practices. However, that is not the case in management practices and the process of decision making based on evidence is actually not a common approach. This presentation will include: I. Review of current health care decision-making practices, A. Reasons for using these approaches, B. What current practices are based on II? Why change health care management practices? A. Evidence based management- an impetus for change, B. Outcomes that might be affected by the change III. What is Evidence Based Management? A. Definition, B. Where can it be applied? C. Examples where it is used effectively and the outcomes achieved IV. Why should we convert to EBM? A. Improve financial outcomes, B. Improve operational outcomes, C. Make better strategic planning decisions, V. Barriers to using EBM, A. Top ten reasons why we don't use it, B. Old vs. new ways of doing things, VI. Changing to EBM, A. Cultural and environmental factors, B. Mind set & expectations, C. Application steps, D. What is the future of EBM? There has been some research on the use of EBM and some excellent examples of how large companies have utilized this approach. The examples included in this presentation will be helpful to leaders who wish to move forward with EMB in their organizations. Additional examples of its use in the health care arena will be provided. The audience will be challenged to review the way they make management decisions and to consider the basis for their own management practices. Practical suggestions on how to introduce or strengthen the concept and move forward with its application will be provided. REFERENCES: Damore, J.
