Evidence-based nursing

  1. Thought of this after the thread talking about pain control and wound care in a small hospital which is based on MD preference rather than evidence.

    How do you incorporate literature into your daily practice? Does your facility encourage the use of evidence-based care? How is it incorporated?

    Does your facility encourage nursing research? How? Is there support for nursing journal clubs, or research initiatives?

    As someone who is studying clinical epidemiology (and participates in clinical trials), I'm fascinated as to how much of the inordinate amount of research literature out there actually makes it into practice.

    Thanks!
