H 14 Implementation of Cost Effective, Team-Based Programs to Build Interprofessional Evidence-Based Practice Competencies: An Academic/Practice Partner Collaboration in a Magnet Recognized Pediatric Hospital

Sunday, 26 July 2015: 8:30 AM-9:45 AM
Description/Overview: With increasing emphasis on interprofessional teams in academia and in workplace practice, this symposium describes a cost effective approach to the integration of the of the Institute of Medicinesf (IOM) core competency, evidence based practice, into interprofessional collaboration projects in a Magnet recognized pediatric organization. The movement to encourage team based education originally came from the 2003 IOM report that identified working in teams as a core competency. In May 2011, the report Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice built upon discipline specific competencies to develop interprofessional competencies for the common goal of creating a safer and improved patient/family centered care delivery system. An academic/practice partnership was utilized to apply the Institute for Healthcare Improvementfs (IHI) Triple Aim framework of improving health system performance to develop and advance interprofessional evidence based programs, structures, and processes. The first presenter will describe the integration of models applicable to interprofessional collaboration, evidence based practice and education and their use to guide improvement in the strength of clinical inquiry. The second presenter will describe the details of one of the programs implemented in the organization as an exemplar. An innovative project developed by the organizational leader and an academic partner consultant with expertise in EBP will be described. The systematic step by step approach designed to improve the integration of evidence into patient care policies by increasing the EBP knowledge and skills of the policy and procedure council members will be shared. The third presenter will describe several innovative EBP projects including; leveraging internal EBP mentors to teach EBP across the organization; EBP education in onboarding of new graduate nurses; EBP contributions by student nurses employed as nursing assistants; and work with schools of nursing, who have student clinical rotations at the hospital, in directed EBP activities.
