Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: This presentation will share successful strategies that sustain and advance evidence-based practice (EBP) in a hospital setting. These strategies include policies, education, communication and the use of a comprehensive EBP database. All nurses and other health care professionals are expected to keep current with the evidence pertaining to their practice. However, having the evidence at their fingertips and using the evidence to change practice remains a challenge. In order to address this challenge and to make evidence-based practice an every-day expectation as well as a positive learning experience, the evidence-based practice process needs to be woven into the fabric of the hospital organization. The main components needed to promote an EBP centered culture are: administrative support, structure, communication, and education. This presentation will discuss specific strategies which made EBP an achievable every-day reality in a large community hospital. Educational strategies include: sandwiched in workshops, teaching days, self learning modules and consultations with librarians and researchers. Effective communication tactics are: public display of evidence-based practice posters, teaching days, monthly reports to the Nursing Leadership on new evidence-based practice reviews (EBPR) with practice changes, an EBPR database system and multidisciplinary internet web resources. The structure that fosters an EBP culture is framed by two EBP committees and policies. Within the established EBP policies are requirements for; notation of strength of evidence, formal documentation of evidence-based reviews on the written nursing standards and the requirement that all nurses read at least one nursing research study yearly. These strategies have proved to be successful in sustaining and advancing our EBP culture. References: 1. Senge, Peter, (1990) The Fifth Discipline; The Art and Practice of a Learning Organization.
