EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE Introduction: Nursing is a complex and a challenging profession that incorporates a quest to define the best practices leading to the holistic care of the patient. The integration of evidence based practice into nursing has opened up realms for practice change and dissemination of knowledge based on the current research available. The need for quality improvement and improving patient health outcomes based on clinical analysis lead to the evolution of evidence based practice (Evidence Based Nursing, n.d.).Evidence based practice is a combination of quality decisions and provision of nursing care based on current research to promote safety of patient health care. Evidence based practice includes evidence that is related
I find the uptake of evidence-based practice is one of the fields that has profoundly affected the paradigm shift and is woven into each of the nursing fields, and since wide researches have been conducted so far, it imperative to note that the available material will equip and provide needed assistance. Stevens (2013) argues that the use of the knowledge which is gained from quality improvement efforts will definitely generate evidence needed to make systems improvements and transform healthcare. Therefore, utilizing the available resources in addition to conducting further researches, exploring on well-intended expert opinions and working together with the willing partners from the academy for discovering what works to improve health care guarantees growth of the profession. It is true that there a number of challenges to improving the profession, but there is no magic bullet for bringing success into the practice, several strategies are needed. Furthermore, what works in the context of care should be identified and the context variables implementation.
Meredith (2007), wrote that a great post on research methods often taught, seem to be taught because they are a requirement and not to actually inspire students passion for research. She was of opinion that lecturers should improve their method of teaching to help students see the practical application of research methodology. 1.7 Barriers to Effective Research Study Among Students It is not sufficient to give nursing and midwifery students a few lecture on the process of research and then expect them to use that knowledge throughout their careers in an ongoing process of gathering and interpreting research evidence and implementation. Nurse educators should plan to start research class on time and also teach to inspire. Students fail to recognize this fact that “it’s so hard when I have to and so easy when I want to” Annie (2010).
Introduction According to Sackett et al. (1996), evidence-based practice (EBP) is “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It integrated clinical expertise, patient values and the research evidence.” Historically, care of the patient was mostly affected by authoritative experiences and opinions. However, EBP made a change to emphasis on data-based and clinically relevant studies. EBP became more concerned in clinical setting.
Further, new clinical roles, the need for managerial and executive talent, the imperative to retain nurses in active practice over longer careers, and the desire by practicing nurses to move up the economic ladder lead to the demand for continuing education and career mobility and development. Schools of nursing have many of the core resources needed to deliver continuing professional education and can provide appropriate courses efficiently and effectively. Affiliation with schools by nurses in active practice may lead to an increase in enrollment for advanced degrees. Health care and health-related organizations may serve as institutional partners in sponsoring such program offerings, which would contribute to their relevance, increase participation, and lower costs. Nursing research is an integral part of the scientific enterprise of improving the nation 's health.
Part 1 Explain why it is important for nurses to use credible and relevant evidence to underpin their clinical practice. (Justify and support answers with credible and relevant evidence whilst adhering to UWS referencing guidance). The role of nurse changes as new research emerges and finds new and improved ways of helping patients to be restored to health. As Aveyard and Sharp (2016) suggested, evidence based practice requires that the approach is clear but also up to date and it based on the best type of evidence available at the point in time. The Nursing and Midwifery Council Code (2015) is to always provide the best possible service related to the best available evidence that is also in line with the patient’s preferences.
Research based on scientific proves are used to form health care policy which can be implemented to improve the health of the community. It also helps in harnessing the knowledge gained in the research into practice of quality care. It helps to practice ethically and professionally ensuring that all actions are supported and can be verified by any healthcare professional. Public health care must ensure that the community needs are well analyzed, by gathering the necessary data, through asking of important questions and searching through literatures to find solutions that are evidence based. Being aware of the evidence in which the public healthcare practice is based is very crucial to the nurse or public healthcare professional, public
As conditions of disease vary from individual to individual due to age factor and concurrent conditions, individualization is the need of the hour. These days, lots of variations exist in persons’ requirements, so physicians prefer individualization of treatment. Hence, for this physicians also require evidence to confirm that the treatment they are thinking is the best suited treatment for the patient. In this scenario, evidence based medicine comes into picture. It is an approach which helps physicians in selecting best evidence available out of all evidences, to choose the treatment which best suits the patient.
The objective is to discuss the role of evidence-based design in facility planning and design as a key element in helping the field of facility planning and management continue to strengthen professional practice. The descriptive exploratory design was the research method. The discussion draws was done with the relevant literature and recent research. Evidence-based design principles utilizes “best information available from research” when making design decisions and improvements in the organization’s clinical outcomes, economic performance, productivity, customer satisfaction, and cultural measures” (Hamilton, 2003) which generate the expected outcome and cost effective. the findings from a study assessing the relationship between the physical attractiveness of outpatient facilities on patients’ perceived quality of care, directions for research on facilities and their relationship to teamwork and collaboration among multi-disciplinary care teams.the issues associated with implementing evidence-based design, and suggest practice-based research to garner the benefits of systematic assessment in the context of real world time and resource constraints.
Today’s health care professionals know that this is not the correct way of practicing. When researchers study diseases or conditions they look at many patients to confidently deduce a particular condition and how to treat it in different patients. (1) Evidence is always vital when it comes to medicines, it should be known how efficacious a medicine is based on evidence, possible contraindications as well as the adverse side effects. All this should be based on research and evidence which is always needed in order to provide the best possible pharmaceutical care to the patient. (1) Recent evidence suggests that three broad strategies based on the principles, strategies, and tactics of evidence-based medicine ' (EBM) can work.
