In the past few decades, evidence-based practice EBP has gained popularity as a transformative approach to healthcare. An example of evidence-based practice in nursing care relating to policy change can be found in revised guidelines addressing sudden infant death syndrome SIDS.
Promoting critical thinking through an evidence-based skills fair intervention
Turner, M. Supporting your practice: Evidence-Based Medicine. The goals of the tutorial are to clearly outline the theory of EBP and to explain how that theory can be put to practice in the day-to-day work of caring for patients. The cycle begins again with an assessment of the patient and the patient's care. The tutorial focuses largely on efficient literature searching and therefore on asking questions and acquiring the best evidence.
Critical thinking skills are essential for all nurses. They are a necessity for the provision of safe, high-quality clinical care. The growing body of research, patient acuity, and complexity of care demand higher-order thinking skills. Therefore, expert nursing performance is dependent upon continual learning and evaluation of performance. For over 50 years, nursing education has emphasized critical thinking as an essential nursing skill.
The three main goals of the Magnet Recognition Program are to: 1 Promote quality in a setting that supports professional practice 2 Identify excellence in the delivery of nursing services to patients or residents 2 Disseminate best practices in nursing services. Many nurses may be unaware of the importance of their contributions to developing new knowledge, innovations, and improvements and may not be able to differentiate among those processes. See PDF link: Comparing research, evidence-based practice, and quality improvement. The purpose of conducting research is to generate new knowledge or to validate existing knowledge based on a theory. Research studies involve systematic, scientific inquiry to answer specific research questions or test hypotheses using disciplined, rigorous methods.
of improving care and outcomes for individual patients (Scherer thinking through evidence-based practice, develop interpersonal skills in educational setting, so that they will be able to apply it later in the manpdf.
The Impact of Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing and the Next Big Ideas
Evidence-based practice is not a new concept to the profession of nursing, yet its application and sustainability is inconsistent in nursing practice. Despite the expansion of efforts to teach evidence-based practice and practically apply evidence at the bedside, a research—practice gap still exists. Several critical factors contribute to the successful application of evidence into practice, including critical thinking. The purpose of this article is to discuss the relationship between critical thinking and the current evidence-based practice implementation models. Understanding this relationship will help nurse educators and clinicians in cultivating critical thinking skills in nursing staff to most effectively apply evidence at the bedside.
The lack of critical thinking in new graduates has been a concern to the nursing profession.
The Critical Role of Evidence-Based Practice in Today’s Healthcare
Nursing has changed from a simple caregiving job to a complex and highly responsible profession. Hence, the role of nurses has changed from being task-oriented to a team-based, patient-centered approach with an emphasis on positive outcomes. Strong critical thinking skills will have the greatest impact on patient outcomes. So, what is critical thinking and how do we develop this? Simply put, critical thinking in nursing is a purposeful, logical process which results in powerful patient outcomes.
The impact of evidence-based practice EBP has echoed across nursing practice, education, and science. The call for evidence-based quality improvement and healthcare transformation underscores the need for redesigning care that is effective, safe, and efficient. In line with multiple direction-setting recommendations from national experts, nurses have responded to launch initiatives that maximize the valuable contributions that nurses have made, can make, and will make, to fully deliver on the promise of EBP. Such initiatives include practice adoption; education and curricular realignment; model and theory development; scientific engagement in the new fields of research; and development of a national research network to study improvement. The article concludes with discussion of the next big ideas in EBP , based on two federal initiatives, and considers opportunities and challenges as EBP continues to support other exciting new thinking in healthcare.
