Tips from TSE: Objectives to consider when implementing evidence-based practice

Staff Development Weekly: Insight on Evidence-Based Practice in Education, June 5, 2009

Incorporating evidence-based practice (EBP) into staff development is an ongoing process that requires you to consider the advantages and barriers, as well as the ethical and legal implications. The advantages of EBP are that it has the potential to improve staff development practice, job performance, and patient outcomes.

Examples of specific objectives to achieve when implementing EBP in staff development include:

  • Identify person(s) responsible for EBP implementation
  • Educate staff development specialists about EBP in staff development
  • Identify ethical and legal implications of EBP
  • Explain rationale for EBP implementation to staff, managers, and administration
  • Revise staff development products and services to reflect EBP
  • Revise or write policies and procedures to reflect EBP
  • Evaluate products and services based on evidence
  • Identify best practices and benchmarks based on evidence
  • Design and implement a staff development research investigation for the purpose of confirming best practices or benchmarks
  • Revise staff development meeting format so reports, proposals, recommendations, etc., are based on evidence
