Notes
In the last fifteen years, the interest in evidence based practice (EBP) increased exponentially in nursing and allied health. However, major barriers to the utilisation of research evidence have been identified, including a large number of research articles being published each year, the majority of articles being written in English, and a lack of time, knowledge and skills. Conscious of the importance and of difficulties to implement EBP in the clinical area, three tertiary schools of nursing and health, and one teaching referral hospital in two cantons of Switzerland (Vaud and Fribourg) have collaborated to develop the BEST project (Bureau d'Echange des Savoirs pour des praTiques exemplaires de soins). The purpose of the BEST is to facilitate and promote EBP in nursing and allied health (midwifery, physiotherapy, and radiography). This initiative will assist practitioners in the EBP process, from identifying a clinical question, gathering of evidence, implementation of recommendations. A two-year pilot study is conducted to test the feasibility of the different stages of the BEST project, to define the organisation, roles and responsibilities, and to detail the description of the approach. It also aims to identify and answer several clinical questions. This presentation offers insight into the BEST project, including processes and obstacles, and presents preliminary results.
