Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Throughout the Magnet journey, our community hospital has been committed to evidence-based nursing practice. With a research committee and a formalized Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Model, we have effectively demonstrated research utilization. However, during our most recent Magnet re-designation visit, the surveyors expressed concern that many staff nurses could not clearly articulate their involvement in evidence-based practice initiatives. We established the Center for Nursing Knowledge and Research, which employs a doctoral prepared nurse researcher. The nurse researcher presented an introduction to EBP for staff throughout the organization and staff nurses were encouraged to initiate unit-based clinical inquiry projects. What was needed was a practical tool to guide the staff nurse in the process of changing or affirming current practice based on evidence. The Clinical Science Investigator's Toolkit was developed as a step-by-step guide to applying our EBP model. It is intended for use by nurses with varied educational preparation and serves to link the nurse with the appropriate experts. It provides practical tips for how and when to consult the nurse researcher, advanced practice nurse, librarian, or educational and leadership resources during the investigation. The toolkit also serves as a template for systematic documentation of the investigation so that the findings and outcome of the process can be shared. On our next Magnet re-designation visit, the success of our efforts will be realized as our EBP model comes alive through clinical investigations actively conducted by staff nurses who have successfully used the Clinical Investigator's Toolkit.
