Abstract:
Paper Presentation: To develop research-based nursing practice and foster the professional development of staff nurses, the nursing department of an academic medical center designed a staff nurse evidence-based practice fellowship program. This program assists staff nurses to solve clinical practice problems while applying evidence-based knowledge to promote quality patient care. The program blends staff nurses' clinical knowledge with research utilization and the change process. The program is a 6-month, evidence-based practice mentored program whereby staff nurses identify a clinical practice issue that is solved by applying the latest evidence and research into practice. Staff nurse fellows are mentored through a process of steps that include: 1. finding the latest evidence and research by searching the literature to help solve their practice issue; 2. critiquing and synthesizing the evidence; 3. developing an evidence-based practice document that describes the new practice change; 4. implementing the new evidence-based practice; and 5. evaluating the outcomes of the practice change. Once the project and evaluation is completed, fellows disseminate the project to division and departmental committees and councils. The staff nurse fellowship program at the academic medical center has been an important strategy to facilitate evidence-based care. The benefits are multiple, with the single most important one being the benefit it offers the patients to receive quality, evidenced-based care. References: 1. Gawlinski, A. (2004).
