Principles of Research and Evidence-Based Practice
It is significant for nurses to keep in mind that the belief of a patient and the circumstances are important, and they should consider them as they offer treatment services to them. Evidence-based practice ensures they incorporate the patient’s preferences (Saunders et al. 2019). The principle of evidence-based practice is composed of six stages: to start, the nurse has to develop the clinical question and then examine the suitable indication resent. From this point, the nursing team will critically analyze the identified evidence to determine its validity and worth (Horntvedt et al., 2018). The nurses will incorporate the clinical specialists together with the patient’s preferences. Individual performance evaluation will follow, and finally, the team will convey the knowledge (Boswell & Cannon 2022). The nursing team also targets practical bases for more research from medical practices through offering education services.
The following are ways to implement evidence-based practices effectively:
Nurses should develop patient-centered objectives. In executing the evidence-based practices, health care nurses ought to outline goals about the outcome for the patients. For instance, in a case where the nurses want to minimize the period of inpatient, the nurses should then come up with strategies to hasten the patient’s recovery instead of reducing the length of time the patient is to spend in the hospital. Secondly, for the nurses to implement evidence-based practices, they need to consider the resources available in the healthcare organization (Boswell & Cannon 2022). The EBP can only transform as long as the healthcare organization can provide the necessary resources.
 If the organization does not have the resources and does not stand in a position to get the resources, the nurses may fail to implement the EBP. The nurses should identify their preferences before considering whether they will adopt a specific evidence-based practice in their health center (Saunders et al., 2019). Thus, after determining a certain EBP, the nurses should then turn to their head provider of the program to enquire if they also like the practice to be implemented. From this kind of communication and understanding, the team will develop strategies to offer evidence-based practice (Saunders et al., 2019). Before implementing the EBP, the nursing practice team should first look into the data in their record since the data behind the EBP may not translate to the implementation in some health centers.
