Implementing evidence-based nursing practice in a pediatric hospital.
A commonly stated reason for dissatisfaction among nurses is that their input regarding patient care and suggestions for improvement in the workplace environment are not solicited or recognized. Nurses can have an active voice in their practice by using the five steps for implementing EBP and being involved in the process of EBP within the work setting. Pediatric nurses have the unique opportunity to become empowered and make a significant difference in their patients' and family's lives by continually asking questions about treatments and care, searching for and evaluating the evidence to support or refute traditional practices, implementing best practice, and evaluating the effectiveness of the evidence as it applies to nursing practice.
