Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation will explore the process of conducting research in a large healthcare system, summarize the research findings, and demonstrate how the findings provided a roadmap for the planning and implementation of initiatives to promote evidence-based practice. ABSTRACT: Evidence-based practice has been recognized by the health care community as well as by regulatory agencies as being the gold standard for the provision of safe and satisfying health care to patients. Barriers and facilitators to the adoption of evidence-based practice in nursing have been identified in the research literature. Misconception about evidence-based practice, lack of administrative support, lack of mentorship, lack of time, lack of access to resources, poor understanding of statistics, and inconsistent basic knowledge and experience with research are some of the barriers reported. Positive attitudes, learning opportunities, and mentorship have shown to increase nurses' use of research in practice. To successfully move evidence into practice, strategies must be based on evidence themselves and address known barriers and facilitators to the adoption of evidence-based practice by nurses. The purpose of this research was to explore nursing knowledge, practice, attitudes, and perceived barriers to practicing evidence-based nursing at five hospitals within a large healthcare system; four acute care facilities and one specialty hospital. Two of the four acute care hospitals are Magnet designated, one having received designation in 2006 and the other in 2008. A secondary aim is to explore the variations between hospitals. The broad objective of this descriptive inquiry was to establish a baseline understanding to guide the planning and implementation of educational initiatives and strategies to promote a culture of evidence-based practice. A descriptive, prospective, correlational non-experimental design was conducted simultaneously at the hospitals in December 2006 and January 2007 using convenience non-probability sampling methods. Two research surveys (BARRIERS Scale & Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire) were computerized and administered. Survey logistics were overseen by the healthcare system Nursing Research Committee including submission of IRB documents. Analysis of individual hospital data was conducted and a statistician is currently performing a between hospital analysis. This presentation will explore the process of conducting research in a large healthcare system, summarize the research findings, and demonstrate how the findings provided a roadmap for the planning and implementation of initiatives to promote evidence-based practice.
