Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: It can be difficult to get nurses excited about evidence-based practice (EBP) because so many nurses are "turned off" by the idea of research. Holding a Mock Court session is an exciting way to promote EBP and encourage nurses to learn and apply the principles of research in order to promote change and enhance practice. ABSTRACT: Nursing needs to take charge of its practice environment through the use of research/EBP. We have been slow to adopt EBP because we are afraid of the word research. This means that needed changes rooted in EBP principles are slow to affect our practice. Too few nurses are interested in EBP. Differing degrees of understanding about EBP exists because of our varied educational programs. We know that when nurses engage in EBP their satisfaction increases and patients are safer. Magnet hospitals have an obligation to be creative in the ways that we support nurses to connect to EBP principles and apply them to their practice. We had a need to increase staff nurse participation in our nursing research day. Previously we partnered with our School of Nursing and did presentations about nursing research. This was uninteresting to our staff nurses and few attended. We were seeking opportunities that would grab our nurses' attention and get them interested in EBP. To get around these challenges we identified one article that discussed using a mock court to promote EBP. This was the foundation for our Mock Court. During an all day court session we deliberated three topics relevant to nursing. Each of these topics was set up to mimic a real court with opposing sides, attorneys, and witnesses. There was a bailiff, reporter, jury/foreman and the chief nurse served as judge. Each side was supported by an attorney who guided the witnesses in discussing the research surrounding each topic. Each team performed a thorough literature search to be able to defend their view with valid evidence. This required an understanding of the levels of scientific research and statistics and its clinical relevance. The jury deliberated in an open forum that allowed the foreman to solicit nurse's thoughts and opinions to reach a verdict. The judge then issued "orders" to change our standards based on the evidence or to support investigation of the issue via formal research. Staff nurses loved the idea of the court and stated that this was the best in-service they have ever attended. Staff nurses had a voice in discussing practice changes through deliberation. We challenged our nurses to base their thoughts on current evidence and to be involved in the mental processes of analyzing research and deciding it's applicability to current practices. Hence, we were able to educate our nurse about EBP. This sparked some nurses to fall in love with EBP. REFERENCES: Phillips, J., et al. 2006. Where's the Evidence?
