WEBVTT 1 00:00:03.280 --> 00:00:09.764 Welcome to the introduction to evidence-based practice my name is Dr. Nancyruth Leibold 2 00:00:11.960 --> 00:00:20.164 In this short video we're going to talk about what does evidence-based practice mean what is the purpose of evidence ... 3 00:00:20.164 --> 00:00:26.585 based practice and what are skills that nurses need for practicing evidence based practice. 4 00:00:29.400 --> 00:00:37.242 First let's define evidence-based practice it really is using the best clinical evidence that we have. 5 00:00:37.880 --> 00:00:40.440 To guide clinical decision-making. 6 00:00:40.960 --> 00:00:42.720 The Overall purpose. 7 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:53.404 Is to improve patient family community outcomes and contain cost of quality but. 8 00:00:54.320 --> 00:00:58.275 But not at the expense of of cosot we somehow need to balance quality and cost so we have the ... 9 00:00:58.275 --> 00:00:58.834 best of both! 10 00:00:59.480 --> 00:01:06.911 what are some of the skill sets that nurses need to practice evidence based practice. 11 00:01:07.640 --> 00:01:15.969 One is they need to be able to read a research article understand the different sections and be able to ... 12 00:01:15.969 --> 00:01:25.196 evaluate it for the quality some research studies are a higher level of evidence than others and it's important to ... 13 00:01:25.196 --> 00:01:28.953 be able to critically read a research article. 14 00:01:30.440 --> 00:01:39.281 Nurse needs to have literature search skills they need to know how to put some keywords and Search terms together. 15 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:47.174 So that they can find the best evidence. We also need to know how to write a Picot question ... 16 00:01:47.174 --> 00:01:48.724 and a Pico question. 17 00:01:49.520 --> 00:01:58.451 Sometimes the T is not included So you may see PICO or PICOT 18 00:01:59.280 --> 00:02:06.581 And the time isn't always used-- the T is for time it's not always included 19 00:02:09.120 --> 00:02:13.777 Other skills are to learn Basic knowledge about design methods and sampling. 20 00:02:14.920 --> 00:02:24.301 Is important just so you know what you can generalize what's reasonable to generalize to a population and and ... 21 00:02:24.301 --> 00:02:33.510 have some literacy of some of the vocabulary so vocabulary really is a key piece to learning how to practice ... 22 00:02:33.510 --> 00:02:35.575 evidence-based practice. 23 00:02:37.600 --> 00:02:44.100 These are some of the major skills and we're going to be focusing on I'm in this textbook and I ... 24 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:51.568 encourage you to use multiple sources as you learn about evidence based practice so you want to be exposed to ... 25 00:02:51.568 --> 00:02:58.553 a lot of different viewpoints and not just have one perspective only and that way you can learn how to ... 26 00:02:58.553 --> 00:03:01.665 use multiple sources also check for accuracy. 27 00:03:03.320 --> 00:03:06.778 Thanks for tuning in and I'll see you in the course room.
