Abstract:
Poster Presentation: A partnership between advanced practice nurses (APN), nursing leadership and staff nurses is essential to create a sustainable culture of evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP is a problem-solving approach to the delivery of care that integrates best evidence, clinician expertise, and patient preferences and values. Literature shows that EBP results in the highest quality of care and best patient outcomes. Our hospitals utilize evidence for much of our nursing practice, but we recognized a need to take it to a higher level. This poster will describe the process we've used to create and sustain an EBP culture in a complex multi-hospital system. Staff nurses were surveyed to: 1) determine their understanding of EBP; 2) identify the barriers to creating an EBP culture; and 3) determine how APNs could help bedside nurses understand and use EBP in daily patient care. An essential first step was to choose an EBP model. A subcommittee of the APN group reviewed most of the currently available EBP models and selected four that most closely "fit" our practice setting. The models were presented to staff nurses and leadership at four half-day seminars, at which key features were discussed, questions were answered and the models were ranked by order of preference. The selected model utilizes EBP mentors (APNs) to lead staff implementation of the model. Education on the model consisted of: 1) creating EBP tool kits for staff nurses and EBP mentors to use as they implement the model; 2) a class for the EBP mentors; and 3) introduction of the model to staff nurses and key leadership groups. We also have created guidelines for integrating the EBP model into our Shared Leadership model and ongoing Quality Improvement Process. Future plans include much more in-depth training of the EBP mentors. We have applied for grant monies to fund that education and to build our own EBP course that can be offered to staff on a regular basis. The process of building a sustainable culture of EBP is...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
