Inside the program: Ways to publicize evidence-based practice projects

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, December 15, 2009

There are many ways to spread the word about the great work you and your nurse colleagues have done with your evidence-based practice (EBP) projects. Some hospitals have a nursing EBP project day during which certain projects are presented as papers and others are offered in a poster format. Other ways to share your EBP work include:

  • EBP bulletin boards on the nursing unit with holders for handouts
  • EBP corner on each clinical unit-this corner may be a shelf or table within each unit's break room where articles, newsletters, and other materials can be distributed
  • Distribution of EBP minutes via e-mail, hardcopy, or on an EBP board/corner
  • Access to an EBP hotline that provides information regarding evidence-based questions or concerns
  • Placement of posters in high-traffic areas, such as where staff nurses eat lunch, to increase the chances that they will be read
  • EBP games, such as a crossword puzzle or bingo, to encourage participation, with small prizes, candy, or handouts as incentives
