Describe one barrier that you think prohibits nurses from engaging in EBP….(Discussion and Response Post)

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Improving patient care and outcomes is paramount to the practice of nursing. As we conclude the learning journey through our world of research and evidence-based practice, please reflect on the following:

  • Think about nursing practice and describe one barrier that you think prohibits nurses from engaging in EBP; share one strategy you could use to facilitate the use of evidence to help improve nursing care for patients.
  • Describe how your thinking has changed about nursing research and evidence-based practice over the past 8 weeks; describe one new learned item during this course that you believe was the most helpful.
  • Scholarly sources are NOT required this week!
  • Also, please create a one paragragh response post to the following response. No resources needed.

  • One barrier I think that prevents nursing from engaging in Evidence-Based Practice is lack of knowledge on how to be involved and the benefits it can render to their practice and the care of their patients. In my current organization we do not have an EBP committee so I am trying to get that started so I can be involved. I do not remember hearing much about EBP when I worked in inpatient facilities either, but it is possible that I too, had lack of knowledge of EBP and just did not pay attention when it was mentioned. Knowledge is power, as Francis Bacon said, and I believe knowledge of EBP is how we facilitate change. One strategy I would use to get more nurses involved in EBP would be to look at a current practice that I know is of concern to nurses in my practice. If you look at a currently problem that nurses can relate to and are concerned about and show that there is evidence out there can improve patient care, I believe you would win a lot of buy from more nurses. They would realize that their concerns can be validated, and their voices heard. By nature, I believe nurses want to be the best patient advocates, but they do not always know how to go about doing so. The more nurses you can get involved in EBP the greater the likelihood you will be able to facilitate it is use and make positive change in nursing care.As we have went through these last 8 weeks my thinking about nursing research and EBP has done a complete 360. I had never considered that I could have such a huge role in research or EBP. The thought of research was just intimidating and the thought of utilizing statistics in depth is something I did not think I could grasp at this point in life. Oh, how we can surprise ourselves sometimes. After learning about each piece of a research project and how to find and read research, I now feel confident in my ability to find evidence to support my clinical questions. The most helpful thing that I learned in this course is the PICOT tool. It will be the foundation of any research I perform in the future. It allows you to lay out your question and think about what your current practice is, what change or intervention you want to implement and the outcome you would like to see achieved. This framework will help to guide you where to start your research and allows you to determine key words to narrow down your search to the most relevant data. This class overall has been a huge revelation for me to realize my potential to initiate change. I am excited to try to get an EBP committee going and continue to use what I have learned in this class.
