Abstract:

Poster presented on Friday, September 21, 2012, Thursday, September 20, 2012

Background:

By the year 2020, 90 percent of all clinical decisions need to be supported by up-to-date information that reflects the best evidence available (Institute of Medicine, 2007).  To achieve this goal, nurses must overcome barriers to evidence-based practice (EBP), which include inadequate EBP skills and lack of resources, mentors, and administrative support (Melnyk, Fineout-Overholt, Stillwell, & Williamson, 2009).  Nursing academia leaders must help to overcome these barriers to foster a spirit of inquiry for evidence-based practice. 

 A transformational leader is one who motivates followers to exceed initial expectations and achieve their highest potential (Bass, 1995).  Application of the transformational leadership model involves exhibiting the four factors of idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration.  A transformational leader must possess a vision, moral character, self-confidence, ethical values, and inner strength in order to succeed in raising followers to a greater attentiveness of the issues of significance (Bass, 1995).

 Purpose:

This poster presentation will describe how the application of the transformational leadership model is being used by nursing academia leaders to ignite a spirit of inquiry of evidence-based practice in clinicians and nursing leaders.

 Application:

The Nu Alpha chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International has applied the transformational leadership model to initiate a collaborative relationship with clinicians and nurse leaders.  The vision for the collaborative relationship is to utilize the leadership model to promote evidence-based practice.  Idealized influence is revealed by modeling EBP through education and collaboration with clinicians and nursing leaders.  Inspirational motivation is demonstrated by providing encouragement to overcome EBP barriers through discussions and mentoring sessions.  Educating clinicians and nursing leaders about the EBP process is being conducted to exhibit intellectual stimulation.  Individual consideration is established by working with clinicians and nurse leaders to develop hospital based EBP projects specific to each nursing unit.
