G 10 EBP: More Than a Research Course

Tuesday, July 12, 2011: 3:45 PM-5:00 PM
Description/Overview: The IOM round table on Evidence-based Practice established a goal that by the year 2020, ninety percent of clinical decisions will be supported by accurate, timely, and up-to-date clinical information, and will reflect the best available evidence. To reach this goal, transformation of nursing curricula is imperative and requires more than renaming the research course. This symposium describes the paradigm shift to infuse concepts and principles of evidence-based practice into an undergraduate curriculum. Additionally, the case for including EBP, Research and QI in nursing curricula will be articulated. Finally, the impact of evidence-users in the healthcare system from the eyes of a nurse executive will be explored.
Learner Objective #1: Compare and contrast Evidence-Based Practice, Research and Quality Improvement to make the case for inclusion of all three topics in a nursing curriculum
Learner Objective #2: Discuss exemplars of EBP integration across the curriculum and a nurse executive’s perspective of a new graduate as an evidence-user in today’s healthcare system.
