Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of the current project is the development and implementation of an evidence-based practice (EBP) program that integrates classroom experiences, peer collaborative learning, and applied clinical activities. The revised and refined program is the result of review and evaluation of the two-year completed curriculum by seven participants. In refining the program, problems addressed included the need for: mechanism to keep in touch with participants rewards for completion of projects, distinguishing between EBP projects versus pure research, collaboration among EBP fellows, hands-on Institutional Review Board (IRB) application development, and mentorship skill development.

Methods: The new program is two years in length with 12 two-hour monthly class sessions. The key components of the curriculum are: introduction to EBP, developing EBP questions, creating the EBP clinical teams, survey construction, IRB preparation, and promoting and disseminating the EBP project. To address rewards, each completed assignment in the first year has a set of points with monetary value. Bonuses are awarded based on the points earned from completing the first year's learning activities. To address collaboration and incorporate clinical application of learning, applied learning, and an e-room discussion board serve to enhance the EBP project development. During these activities, fellows are required to develop and disseminate the EBP project. Mentoring skills are practiced in the second year. The EBP coordinator meets with fellows once a month to evaluate and facilitate their progress. Two instruments with proven, documented psychometric properties are administered.

Findings and Discussion: Evidence-based practice is an effective method for involving the bedside nurse in integrated research and outcome findings in his/her current clinical practice. The improved curriculum allows the bedside nurse to develop creative thinking and problem-solving skills in the clinical setting, further improving the quality of patient care and safety.
