Title:
Teaching EBP from Michigan to China and Indonesia and Back Again
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) An Evidence-based practice initiative was the focus of a multiple year international exchange between Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) in Michigan and the First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University in Guangzhou, China. A new exchange with Indonesia has recently been initiated to share information about EBP with healthcare professionals there. Questions were solicited from the Chinese nurses that could be used for an Evidence Based Project Assignment, in a Critical Thinking and Communication class, by SVSU students.  Students then researched the topics using the Stetler Model, making sure findings were culturally relevant, and sent the findings back via a faculty member and students to present to the nurses at Jinan. A similar process was recently initiated in Indonesia. The Chinese nurses then planned follow-up workshops where one of their staff presented EBP concepts and encouraged usage of research in determining care.  Nursing also sought, and received, a seat at the research committee of the hospital.  Prior to this only doctors and administrators were on this committee. Each area also identified one EBP question pertinent to specific units, for further study.  This presentation will highlight what was learned in China and summarize our new experience in Indonesia. Lessons learned will be presented from the faculty, student and hospital personnel viewpoints. Important insights were learned about availability of resources, role of health care professionals and interpretation of EBP in other cultures. Bibliography: Melnyk, B.
