Abstract:
Poster Presentation: In our organization, Nursing Leadership implemented an evidence based program, EB-RUN, to encourage and develop evidence based nursing at the bedside. Participation in the EB-RUN program as novice researchers has been a rewarding experience. Access to resources, such as library classes, mentoring, and managerial support have been instrumental in nurses? professional development; so much so that neuroscience nurses are now routinely asking, "What is the evidence in our practice?" Clinical nurses are currently in the process of developing the team's first research proposal to evaluate the benefit to patients when receiving bowel preparation prior to surgery. Clinical nurses have been challenged to manage constipation and GI complications in the neurosurgery patient population. The protocol will support a retrospective medical record review for patients who have undergone neurosurgical procedures, craniotomies and laminectomies. Baseline data will be analyzed to evaluate the need for further research to establish evidence for any necessary changes in practice. Clinical nurse Mentees are excited and enthusiastic about participation in the EB-RUN program, because they have a varied level of resources, such as working with the Physicians and Advanced Practice Nurses. Also, participation in the Evidence Based Program has congealed working relationships and inspired nurses to work tirelessly on a variety of projects that have influenced the practice of the Mentees, and the neurosurgery unit as a team.
