Abstract:

Session presented on: Sunday, November 17, 2013

Barriers to becoming involved in evidence-based practice (EBP), such as lack of time, knowledge and computer skills have been identified by nurses. A formal two phase program has been implemented to address these barriers with the ultimate goal of increasing knowledge, attitudes, skills and habits towards EBP. The program has created an infrastructure for staff nurses to integrate EBP into practice and/or drive original nursing research. The internship program has facilitated changing the culture and impacting patient outcomes thereby demonstrating its value to the organization.

Outcomes from the EBP program include:

 

  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Integration of EBP into practice, protocols, policies and order sets
  • Development of the Nursing Research Council which has supported nurse initiated research projects
  • Increased library utilization
  • Bedside nurses disseminating best practice through posters, presentations at conferences and publication

Educating and engaging nurses in the EBP process leads to increased autonomy and satisfaction, energizing the environment in which they work. This program provides an opportunity for nurses to enhance their confidence in challenging the established traditions and move towards best practices. EBP elevates nursing to a higher level which ultimately leads to optimal patient outcomes.
