Evidence Based Practice


Hello everyone! I am searching for ideas to do an EBP assignment on. I am looking for something specific to ED nursing and I will be writing about why this is the current EBP. Thanks in advance!


Has 2 years experience.

Not ENTIRELY specific to ED nursing, but I did one on whether or not antibiotics are really useful when given BEFORE surgery. Since I frequently hang mefoxin and ancef on pts prior to going to the OR, I find it to be useful to actually have the EBP findings.

I think another interesting one could be related to the time pts are monitored after receiving epi for allergic reaction.
