Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Community hospitals' value using evidence based practice. However, the goal of building evidence into daily practice can be challenging, particularly when the resources of an academic medical center are not found within close proximity. This presentation will outline the development of an effective long distance community hospital/academic health center partnership focused on evidence based practice skill acquisition. We will describe: 1) How community and university Magnet Hospitals established a partnership designed to build expertise in evidence based practice, 2) Building blocks of a community hospital's action plan, 3) Infrastructure needed to support evidence based practice projects, and 4) An educational program for developing advanced skills in leading evidence-based practice leadership. The collaboration began in 2004 and has led to development of 16 evidence-based practice projects in the community hospital. Additional outcomes include developing linkages between the Research Committee and project leaders, improving use of library resources, revisions of a multi-year strategic plan for evidence-based practice, and expanding resources to support project dissemination. Keys to success include: 1) Organizational leadership and commitment at the community hospital, 2) Partnership between hospitals with "magnet" cultures, 3) Strengthening multiple roles needed for success, 4) Selecting the right nurses for program participation, and 5) Education and consultation by evidence-based practice leaders from the academic medical center. Join us for this practical session and learn how to promote staff nurse involvement in and application of evidence based practice in your community hospital environment.
