Abstract:

Poster presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013, Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The evidence-based practice (EBP)/research shared governance council at a 300 bed county hospital identified the need to create an EBP mentor role to help engage bedside nurses in the EBP process.  Most bedside nurses have been with the organization long term and are educated at an associate or bachelors level and have little knowledge about the process of changing practice based on best available evidence.  It was decided to develop a series of continuing education classes about EBP for selected mentors and staff nurses. The curriculum was developed so that upon completion the learner would meet the pre-licensure competencies for EBP crafted by the Quality Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Institute. Current and former members of the EBP/Research shared governance council could apply to be mentors. Four one hour classes were offered: Formulating a PICOT Question, How to do a Literature Search, How to critically Appraise Research Articles, and Moving Evidence into Action: Implementing best Practice. The mentors also had worksheets to complete and return to the instructor. Five mentors attended and completed the classes. As questions were submitted to the council, mentors volunteered to work with staff. Four staff nurses’ projects were completed. Mentors helped the staff nurses write the PICOT question, do a literature search, identify best practices, implement change and finally share the results of the practice change with the shared governance council.
