Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, July 28, 2014: Purpose: This presentation will describe a 15 year collaboration between Jinan University, Guangzhou, China and Saginaw Valley State University, USA. The purpose of the collaboration is to “build” nursing competence in Evidence Based Practice. The building process will be shared including the architectural work, digging the foundation, framing the final product, doing finishing work, and describing upkeep needed. This has been a very successful construction project, with solid outcomes for nursing, in both countries. Methods and Results: Actual interventions taken will be shared along with ideas for improving upon our experience. These are a few of the concrete examples of interventions that will be shared for each step of the building process:  Consulting the Architect:  Critical communications will be discussed between the two countries, and the nursing personnel. Establishing links, personally and professionally, will be highlighted. Digging the Foundation:  Classes offered and workshops held will be outlined, over several years. Classes in China centered on EBP, while in the USA they centered on cultural competence. Framing:  Examples of Evidence Based Practice Projects requested by different hospital units will be shown. Implementation of EBP at the hospital/university will be outlined. Finishing work:  Having Chinese nursing scholars come to the USA to take EBP classes and study research methods and share their experiences will be discussed. The importance of recognizing cultural practices will be emphasized. Upkeep of the Structure:  Methods for continuing to engage nurses in translating nursing evidence to achieve better patient outcomes and keep the “building” solid will be shared. Outcomes for both organizations will be shared. Conclusions: The many positive outcomes of this collaboration will be shared, both for SVSU students, Jinan students and faculty and hospital nurses in both countries. Future ideas/possibilities for collaboration will be shared. The audience will be involved in brainstorming other strategies that could be implemented to further improve global health outcomes.
