Utilization of EBP
Utilization of EBP is important in everyday practice, to provide the patients with the most up-to-date treatment modalities. EBP is the purposeful and judicious use of the best treatment evidence along with expertise and patient wishes to improve patient outcomes (Titler, 2008). One of the primary methods to incorporate EBP into my work is by doing the research. If I put in time and effort to perform the research and search through the treatment data, I can utilize the research to make a proposal to the physician. If they feel that the information is appropriate, then they can utilize the idea for patient treatment. Another method to incorporate EBP into the workplace is by performing new policies or procedures based on previous research and evidence. Proposals can be made to produce change within the facility. Some obstacles can be denying the proposals, or not wanting to take the treatment path. If the physician is notified, and proper evidence and theory is behind the recommendation then the physician is more likely to think about the plan versus denying it. Also, if proposals and change plans have been well prepared, and recommendations or changes can be made to the proposal to suit the facilities need then it is more likely to be accepted. In addition, if it can be proven to be cost-effective and beneficial to the company, they are likely to accept it as well.
