Abstract:

Session presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013

Background:  Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a method to improve clinical practice. Nurse educators are being asked to prepare graduates who base their practice on evidence and who can participate in shaping the health care delivery system. The Institute of Medicine supports the use of EBP as one factor in reducing the gap that exists between research generation and implementation of findings into practice.  In addition, five core competencies of which EBP is one, has been identified by the Committee on Health Professions Education Summit to meet the needs of the 21st Century Health Care System. Nursing students’ attitudes toward research and research use were found to be largely negative and students asked to increase the clinical relevance of the research course. Students who had EBP introduced in their junior level were found to be better prepared to find answers to clinical problems in their senior year.

Purpose:  The purpose of this collaborative study was to determine the current state of EBP in selected schools of nursing in four Latin America countries: Argentina, Chile, Colombia & Ecuador, Mexico, Ireland and the United States. The study aims are to, within seven countries: 1) determine EBP beliefs and implementation by students and nurse educators, and 2) describe the use of EBP assignments/learning activities in nursing programs.

Design & Methods:  The study was a descriptive, correlational design. To understand the current state of EBP in schools of nursing student, faculty and staff versions of the Evidence-based Practice Beliefs Scale, Evidence-based Practice Implementation Scale and Organizational Culture and Readiness for System Wide Implementation of Evidence-based Practice Survey were used for electronic data collection.  Scales were translated into Spanish for Spanish-speaking countries.

Results: Descriptive statistics, correlation, and regression were used to explore EBP Beliefs, Implementation and Culture/Readiness across countries.  EBP assignments and learning activities are described.
