Feedback form is now closed.


To determine if teaching evidence-based practice (EBP) theory to registered nurses (RN) in a full day workshop leads to the application of EBP principles in their work environment.


The attendees of the EBP workshop are RNs working in direct patient care settings at a health and hospital system affiliated with an academic medical center. The workshop is taught by advanced practice RNs and a librarian and covers topics such as developing clinical questions, synthesizing evidence, and incorporating evidence into practice. The librarian teaches a session on searching for the evidence.


A survey will be given to RNs who have participated in the EBP workshop. The questions will assess frequency of use of EBP principles since the workshop, including formulating answerable questions, searching for relevant evidence, and critically appraising literature.


Results will be available by October 2017. The authors hypothesize that participation in the EBP workshop leads RNs to frequently use and apply EBP principles in their work environment

This survey will provide insight into how well this type of workshop leads to application of EBP principles by RNs, and can be used to guide those looking to implement or revise a similar type of workshop in their setting.
