The goal of this literature review is to show the importance of incorporating evidence based practice (EBP) into the clinical and education setting of nursing. EBP education needs to be added to yearly nursing competencies in all settings of healthcare delivery. While EBP and protocols should never replace clinical critical thinking on an individual, patient to patient level, the community deserves the best care, which is current evidence-based. Nurses are accountable for their choices in practice, EBP empowers nurses to question rationale of protocols and physician orders. There has been an attempt to implement EBP into the clinical practice of the healthcare system nationwide. Statistics are not available for EBP implementation as a whole …show more content…
Data was collected voluntarily via Monkey Survey from the nursing schools whose dean had replied via email and agreed to school participation. ARCC-E (Advancing Research and Clinical Practice through close Collaboration and Education) was used to measure the perception of the effectiveness of EBP courses. Amongst the highest ranking statement on the questionnaire was the availability of data bases, belief in EBP courses being very useful for graduate nursing students and faculty having high expectations of what students can achieve in EBP courses. Amongst the lowest rating was faculty members were EBP mentors for healthcare professionals and that they would like to be mentors. Time constrictions in relation to the amount of academics, theories and skill sets required to be taught in nursing programs. Students’ background knowledge research and understanding of EBP was also noted to hinder …show more content…
(2014) researched Systematic Implementation of Evidence-Based Practice in a Clinical Nursing Setting. It is known that EBP is not sufficiently implemented in daily clinical practice and there is a significant lapse in time between research and implantation in practice. The issues to implementing the Best Practice Mode of Working and EBP discharge protocol into this setting was the limited knowledge of EBP. Patients and caregivers interviewed, expressed desire to be aware of discharge twenty-four hours in advance including follow up and relapse prevention. Patients reported not feeling informed or prepared to go home and successfully continue to heal without relapse or secondary issues. The nurses surveyed from the lung unit also stated that the discharge process was unstructured. Researchers did not find any supporting EBP guidelines to follow for discharging lung patients home, only that discharge instruction should be structured and comprehensive. Researchers worked with the nurses to develop a discharge protocol specific for lung patients using best current research available, nurse expertise, patient perspective and patient feedback. This intervention was only partially met, while the feedback was positive from the discharged patients it was clear that the nurses had difficulty applying EBP steps, suggesting a possible need for a simplified version. Further research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of implementing a simplified
Is the research setting similar to your instructional setting. Also, this is an area that the education professional needs to think about when selecting an EBP to ensure similar positive results. Is the setting in the general classroom or a resource room where there are probably more privacy, flexibility, and less opportunities for
Discuss the value of best evidence as a driving force in delivery of nursing care at your facility. Throughout the healthcare system, evidence based practice establishes a foundation where changes are made to improve practice. Leaders in practice are stationed at both the facility and system levels to guarantee the implementation of evidence based practice. ET’s facility’s EMR also contains third party evidence based content that provides care plan, flowsheet, and patient education content. To guarantee that ongoing evidence is imbedded within the EMR through regular upgrades, using a third party makes this possible.

The term Evidenced-based practice (EBP) is one of the most talked about concepts in healthcare. Nursing scholars, worldwide, have sought to provide healthcare workers with the evidence from research to be transform this into clinical care. To ease this transference of data into practice, scholars have developed EBP models. These models direct the researcher with the process from hypothesis to implementation of the data. The perplexity of EBP is that the data can come from research, clinical experience, patients, or local context and environment (Rycroft-Malone, et al., 2012).
Before EBP was imbedded into healthcare, nurses relied in the advice of senior nurses and what they learned through education and trial and error. Floranc enightengal ……. However, it wasn’t until the mid-1800s that evidence-based medicine had its beginnings, but did not come into play until the year of 1972. Through many years different modifications, various groups of nurses have drafted their own versions of evidence-based practice guidelines into play.
For this week’s discussion post I will identify a situation where evidence-based practice has been applied in my workplace. Evidence-based guidelines are put in place and into practice after research has been completed. This helps with intertwining practice and research and are established by professional organizations, government agencies, institutions, or expert panels (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014). These clinical guidelines give clinicians findings to help in the decision making process of diseases or treatments. In developing evidence-based practice, a clinical question must first be put into place.
Introduction Nurses as a professional, we are obligated to deliver the best care to patients. Every interventions that we performed are expected to be based on evidences and underpinned by rationales. In recent years, the idea of evidence-based practice is prevalent (G). To promote the development of evidence-based practice, we have to address the barriers and facilitators (B). In the following, I am going to give a description on evidence-based practice.
Research has proven over and over again that using evidenced-based practice (EBP) lowers the cost of healthcare, provides for better patient outcome, and for best work satisfaction among nursing staff. Yet, there is disagreement among nurses about the real value of doing research to change and initiate better nursing practices. The lack of enthusiasm to generate knowledge from research has many different facets, depending on who is questioned. Moving EBP into the clinical practice is complicated by time constraints, increasing demands on nursing care, and the inability to incorporate into the organization’s policies and procedures.
Evidence based practice (EBP) is a process of integrating high quality evidence into practice or care provided by health professionals and decision makers in health care. This discussion will explore the meaning of the term Evidence Based Practice further and discuss its origins. EBP requires finding the best available evidence to inform practice, its greatest benefit being the best possible care for a client. Other benefits and limitations will be further discussed below. EBP demands the client be seen as an individual and their unique circumstances be considered in the application of evidence
1. CONCEPT 1-EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE IN NURSING This concept was deducted from module 2 with the topic “Concept of Evidence-based practice”. Evidenced-based nursing is a way of making decision and providing nursing care that is based on clinical issues and combine it with the most current, relevant research that is available on that issue. Evidence based nursing utilize the most up to date method of providing care, which have been proven via assessing high quality studies and statistically with significant research findings.
Evidence based is been used widely in nursing practice, which involves integration of a problem solving approach within the framework that concerning care, using the best evidence from research, knowledge and proficiency from clinical together with patients’ beliefs and values. Nursing practice does support EBP as researchers had done many studies that showed improved outcomes when the best evidence is implemented of patient’s care. However, researchers had argued that, there are challenges in attaining and maintaining EBP in nursing practice despite the awareness (Mary, et. al. 2013). By using EBP nurses are able to come up with high quality of nursing care plan for the patients.
Compared with a large full-service hospital, this ICU is most like a step-down unit. Being located in a small farming community, most patients present with complications from Diabetes, COPD, and cardiac issues. Management is currently in transition, with the current manager being interim. The general attitude towards Evidence Based Practice is moderate. Several new policies have been implemented based on EBP, but it is certainly not the leading focus.
Understanding the Healthcare system can be very challenging due to the system is constantly changing from new technology manage care, health care reforms, aging populations and other economic factors that have a significant impact in the service provided. Understanding plays an important role in the health care system because the improving quality in the healthcare system requires the implementation of internationally and recognized evidence based guidelines and protocols. EBP is necessary to integrate the best research with clinical expertise and patient value to establish best health outcomes. We believe that openly outlining and understanding some form of theory that explains the reason for why an intervention may work to induce planned
The change revolves all around discharge and follow-up appointments. Discharge is the first intervention that should be improved to ensure quality transitional care. It is the golden rule that is taught to all nurses that discharge begins upon admission. I’ve had a firsthand witness of multiple discharges within the hospital and can truly say that a majority of the patients were not receptive to the teaching. It is understandable why discharge teaching would go into one ear and out the other.
Giving care to a patient is not a straightforward process because a patient is made up of advanced systems. Symptoms and the severity of a disease process are dependent on a particular patient, and it may not always be uniform from patient to patient. Because of this, nurses must be able to use their knowledge appropriately to help a patient. Nurses use techniques, such as Evidence Based Practice, in order to integrate new and advanced knowledge into their patient care (Canada, 2016). By exercising evidence based practice, nurses effectively seek knowledge, take experience from past situations, and apply this intelligence to best give patient care (Canada, 2016).
