Evidence-Based Practice: Share your journey

Do you have an EBP story to share?

For nurses just getting started with evidence-based practice, the steps between deciding on an area to research and implementing a plan for improvement can be overwhelming. Identifying sources of qualified research, interpreting the results, translating procedures from theory to practice… It’s complicated, to say the least.

I’m looking for a few brave souls who would be willing to share what I’m calling “EBP notes from the field.” If you’ve gone through the process from start to finish, would you be willing to share ebpnotesyour story? I see these as 1-2 pages looking into the decision making process, the research you chose, the steps you took to get buy-in from management. What did you learn in the process? How did you implement your research? Have you been able to measure the results?

I’d like to include a few of these stories in an upcoming book project: a simple EBP guide for working professionals. It will be very practical, straightforward, and based on evidence, but with an applied rather than academic approach.

If you’re interested in participating, please send me an email (cmoore@hcpro.com). I’ll give you some guidelines so you can jump right in. If we include your material, we will of course give you credit in the book and send you a copy of it when it’s done. And you’ll know that you’ve helped some of your colleagues in the larger nursing world by sharing your experiences.
