Evidence-based practice (EBP) is essential for quality health care, and EBP knowledge needs to be increased among nurses. Web-based courses may effectively deliver such education. In this study, data were collected about the Oncology Nursing Society web course "Developing Skills for Evidence-Based Practice" and evaluated for demographic characteristics and EBP knowledge test scores.
AT A GLANCE: No significant correlation was seen between knowledge test scores and participants' education or experience levels.Course participants had significant improvement on knowledge test scores after web course completion.
Additional studies are needed to explore the impact of EBP knowledge on clinical practice.
