Abstract:
Paper Presentation: An important dimension of nurturing a culture that embraces evidence-based practice is creation of a supportive environment. Distinctive characteristics of such an environment include communicating active projects, sharing evidence garnered from the literature, and role-modeling through the chronicles of successful projects. Recognizing that clinical nurses desire coaching as they embark on an evidence-based practice journey, as well as mentoring at key intersections along the way, our nursing organization explored how to provide this crucial support. One of the vehicles chosen was creation of an intranet website to serve as a means of sharing resources, guidelines, and information. The website is designed to become a dynamic, ever-changing resource for tools, statistics for beginners, project examples, and other valuable information. A distinguishing feature of the website is project registration. Each team, after registering their project, logs progress and milestones achieved, conclusions, recommendations, and lessons learned. Other clinicians can "look over the team's shoulder" to learn from and to volunteer support to projects of special interest. The resulting database supports targeted, comprehensive summaries of evidence-based practice projects. Users can search for current and completed projects based on clinical topic, PICO format, evidence summaries, etc. In addition to the outcomes described, other objectives included creation of a repository of active and completed evidence-based projects and their outcomes, and development of a chronology of evidence-based projects. This presentation will share the vision that generated the website and examples of content, describe our database and the benefits it is generating, and share lessons learned as we continue on our evidence-based practice journey.
