Good response to the question Leanet. Many researchers believe that lack of knowledge about research and EBP is present in many nurses today. Even though it is being presented to students in nursing programs now, the connection between research, and its’ effects on daily practice is not made. Many nursing colleagues would rather ask each other for information than searching a database. Since nursing is such a high demand position and many facilities are understaffed many times, I believe this plays an important role in the disconnect. With the changing environment in regards to technology, and the availability at many facilities of internet access and medical librarians, one would think that conducting research would be more efficient and quick allowing evidence-based practice to be more accessible to the clinical nurse. Comments?
