Models to Guide Practice Change
and Developing a Plan for the
Evidence-Based Practice Project
Facilities often establish EBP committees who are charged with reviewing the evidence and proposing changes in practice. The committees work together to synthesize plans and engage in activities that will promote EBP in to promote quality care and patient safety. Integral to developing and implementing EBP change are the need to utilize effective communication and leadership skills.
The required readings this week provide an overview of different evidence-based models that can be used as guides to conducting evidence-based practice change projects. In the videos for Week 5, an EBP committee discusses the evidence-based steps they used to identify, assess, propose and implement a practice change in their work settings. For this Discussion, you will see a committee as it completes it work. There are two scenarios with the videos. In the first one, there are issues that develop that need to be resolved. You will be asked to pause the video and identify how you would address the conflict that seems to be developing over the EBP change. In the second scenario, you will see how leadership skills are utilized to help focus the committee on the EBP project.
BY DAY 3
Post the following:
After viewing the videos, use the flow chart in the [Iowa EBP Model to Promote Quality Care] found in the Grove, Gray, and Burns text, to discuss how closely the EBP project did or did not follow each step in this model. In what ways do you think the project would have benefited from implementing any step(s) that were not used?
