Nurses Attitudes Towards EvidenceBased Practice

An evidence-based practice encompasses an amalgamation of clinical expertise and systematic research acquired over the years through experience. It is observed that the utilization of evidence is frequently suggested in context to healthcare improvement, modification, and development. On the other hand institutional changes, healthcare practitioner aptitude, proficiency, education play a vital role. Research indicates that challengers disagree about evidence-based research making a significant difference in health care. A lacuna is observed in an insightful approach as healthcare expenses are substantially predisposed by the implementation, acceptance, and proliferation of knowledge and technology. This directly influences mortality as well as morbidity and hence evidence-based health care.
Research reviews suggest that evidence-based nursing practice does sway “substantial gains” in terms of patients’ behavior, knowledge, physiological and psychosocial upshots in contrast to patients who obtained customary nursing care. It is believed that evidence-based nursing is more than utilizing research findings as it is an assimilation of investigations and explorations carried out while performing the research besides patient predilections, the clinical locale, and situations.
One of the studies conducted by Thomas et al acknowledged 18 studies of 467 healthcare contributors (partakers were nurses in all except 1 study). It was found that reporting method was inadequate and required improvement while 3-5 studies display some development and perfection indicating that evidence-based research do occupy an important position in nursing care and improvement in patient’s well being.&nbsp.
