Ivonne I too thought this was going to be a very easy class. I had absolutely no idea how complex evidence based would actually be. There are many tedious concepts and facts to take into consideration when it comes to evidence based practice. As Houser (2015) states "The strongest evidence for nursing practice is provided when multiple studies report the same results. " I also learned that the way you search for your data makes an incredible difference in your results.
Evidence based practice is a process that is often used by nurses to assistance with making autonomous decisions whenever possible. It is the development of clinical nursing standards based on what research demonstrates as effective care. In time of clinical decisions, it requires nurses to use proven scientific data or information instead of depending on their instincts, past experiences or advices. According to Frinkelman, evidence based practice helps in identifying and assessing high quality, clinically relevant research that can be applied to clinical practice as well as the development of policy. “EBN emphasizes ritual, isolated and unsystematic clinical experiences, ungrounded opinions, and traditions as a basis for nursing practices,
According to Hinkle and Cheever (2014), Evidence-based practice is not about emerging new knowledge or confirming existing knowledge. It is about interpreting the evidence and applying it to clinical decision-making. And clinical opinion validates existing knowledge based on a theory. Furthermore, Evidence-based practice is a practice that is supported by the reaches that considers the health care setting, patients, and clinical judgment (Hinkle and Cheever, 7) This week I was able to practice in relaxation techniques with my patient.
Evidence-Based Leadership Nola Ward Independence University Evidence-Based Practice Evidence-based practices is the combination of the best research evidence with patients values and clinical expertise which would lead to an improved outcome. According to Annie E. Casey 2010, the evidence-based process interchanges from research to putting into action and finish off with providing information for making treatment decision. Evidence-based practice is found in social policy, social work, educating, child welfare, early childhood and also criminal justice.
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.
Evidence based practice and how is it relative to nursing practice Nursing practice is often guided by tradition rather than evidence-based practices. Over the past two decades nursing has gone through vast changes. Patient care has shifted to evidence-based practice which uses current research and historical evidence to implement care and improve patient outcomes. EBP integrates clinical expertise, patient values and preferences, and critical appraisal of relevant evidence to clinical questions (Chrisman, Jordan, Davis, & Williams, 2014).
Over the last decade, there has been a noteworthy change in the way that healthcare professionals use evidence from scientific research in their clinical practice. There has been plenty of evidence that a gap existed between research and practice. The concept of evidence-based health care has become part of the language of clinicians, managers, policy makers, and researchers in health services throughout the world. Though the notion of evidence-based health care is far from the new and the extent of its uptake in clinical practice is uneven, the diffusion and adoption of the ideas associated with evidence-based health care during the 1990s provide a remarkable testament to their power and their relevance to the current problems and challenges

Perhaps I am not the only person that is finding it difficult to distinguish between research nursing and evidence based nursing. Most of what we do comes from both sources. In research nursing we characterize the problem and through evidence based we close the gap between what we know and what we do every day (Stevens, 2013). By performing evidence based nursing we increase effectiveness, improve performance, efficiency and better patient outcomes. Yet when we perform evidence based nursing we are researching the effectiveness of already known knowledge to apply to present situations.
The impact of evidence based practice (EBV) has reflected across the nursing practice, education and science. I have been able to acquire a better knowledge of how research relates to nursing practice, and how findings could be used to transform the field of nursing. As a nurse, I have been able to recognize shortcomings with element of practice, process and procedures. However, I lack a strong ability to create a strategy for change. From this class, I have been able to know the constituents of an evidence based project including a PICOT question.
