NSG 3029 Week 5 Discussion
For this assignment, you will post your initial response to
the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.
To support your work, use your course and text readings and
articles from the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite
your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your
classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your
classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a
statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale,
challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between
two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Cite sources for your
responses to other classmates. Complete your participation for this assignment
by the end of the week.
Clinical Research and EBP
You will identify if clinical research is the same as EBP or
consider the obstacles to nursing research in a clinical environment.
Using the South University Online Library find research
articles on clinical research and EBP.
Based on your research, respond to one of the following
Discussion Question 1
How does your facility incorporate EBP in a clinical setting
to promote patient outcomes? Do you have recommendations on how your facility
can improve its use of EBP?
Discussion Question 2
How can you use EBP in your practice? Discuss some
impediments to creating a program of nursing research in your clinical
Identify and discuss strategies for promoting EBP in your
Citations should conform to APA guidelines. You may use this

Implementation and sustainment of evidence-based practices (EBPs) are common challenges faced by healthcare organizations. The Clinical Research and Practice Collaborative, an evidence-based initiative implemented at a large Military Treatment Facility, addresses EBP implementation and sustainment by expanding the culture of nursing clinical inquiry and broadening nursing research efforts to include EBP. The evidence-based intervention of scheduled, intentional, intraprofessional collaboration between PhD nurse scientists and advanced practice registered nurses as compared to previous methods of spontaneous, consultative collaboration, focuses on developing support for nursing research and EBP initiatives.
Materials and methods: A 2-year pre- and 2-year post-implementation timeframe compared outcomes (proposals, publications, posters) from individual and collaborative nursing research and EBP initiatives.
Results: Although nursing research initiatives remained stable, research publications and posters were reduced by 63%, EBP initiatives grew 450%, EBP publications and collaborative nursing initiatives for both research and EBP increased. Additionally, EBP Council membership rose 300%, and an intraprofessional cadre was formed during the implementation.
Conclusions: Intentionally scheduled collaboration between PhD nurse scientists and advanced practice registered nurses is a promising model to promote an expanded culture of nursing clinical inquiry and should be considered for medical facilities seeking to enhance EBP and nursing research efforts.
