Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Goal: Two years ago, a strategic plan to insure that clinical practice is based on best evidence was developed. Inherent in this plan was that direct care nurses would be educated and mentored to participate in the evidenced based practice (EBP) initiative. Actions: Initial actions included selection of an EBP conceptual framework and then, development of "Guidelines for Reviewing the Procedure." This latter information packet details how to conduct an evidence review and document it within the guideline. Staff education began with a full day workshop by two nationally known EBP nurse experts. Subsequent ongoing offerings include: a two-hour workshop presented by the EBP nurse specialist; a two-hour interactive session on how to search for best practice using the internet; an EBP toolkit; and, 1:1 mentoring by the EBP specialist and defined EBP leadership experts. Outcomes: To date, eight EBP changes have been initiated and 124 clinical procedures have been or are in process of being reviewed and revised according to EBP Guidelines. To accomplish the latter, procedures were assigned to unit directors and educators, who in turn work with staff nurses through the professional practice model to complete the reviews and revisions. In addition, multiple collaborative practice guidelines have been devised using an EBP framework. Take Home Messages: Learners will receive copies of the aforementioned EBP tools and materials; learn how nursing students can assist with EBP literature searches; and, hear two case studies which illustrate how staff nurses can be leaders in the creation of an evidenced based practice culture: 1) A Collaborative Approach to Perinatal EBP - Nurses and Physicians as Investigative Partners; and, 2) "Shouldn't We Be Doing That Here?" - An Emergency Nurses' Response to a Published EBP ½ Way Around the World!
