Abstract:
Poster Presentation: An Evidence-Based Resource Unit Nurse (EB-RUN) Program was developed as a strategy to support evidence based practice (EBP) as a reality throughout a comprehensive cancer center. Nurses employed by the organization had opportunity to volunteer, with approval of their manager, for educational training to serve as a resource nurse to support EBP. EBRUNs attended two 8-hour classes, which provided an overview of the research process, information about evidence based practice, and instructions to critically appraise research articles. After attending the classes, EBRUNs completed a competency assessment to identify additional, individual learning needs. Each EBRUN was assigned a mentor to oversee their professional development in the program. The mentor's role is to teach, advise, and provide encouragement for EBRUNs as they develop ideas using strategies that will work at the unit level. The competency assessment provided information for mentors to develop plans, goals and objectives to meet identified learning needs. The critical role of a mentor supports strengths and identifies areas for improvement to successfully implement evidence in practice. The mentor serves as a contact person to answer questions, problem solve, and develop strategies. Mentor advice provides basic information, as well as promoting critical thinking and new skill development. Library classes are provided to increase database search skills to conduct literature searches on evidence based topics. Monthly journal clubs provide a forum to present educational information, improve article critique skills, identify unit evidence-based topics or projects, and create posters of EBRUN and mentor progress to display during nurses' week.
