Ep 46 Appendix I | Center for Nursing Inquiry


In their series on the Johns Hopkins Evidence Based Practice Model tools, Nursing Inquiry Coordinator, Nadine Rosenblum, and Evidence-based Practice Coordinator, Maddie Whalen have reached the tool where ‘the rubber meets the road.’ Appendix I, the Translation and Planning Tool, helps EBP teams assess the strength of the evidence and potential risk of a change, and come to a decision about next steps. Nadine and Maddie cover each step of the tool in detail and describe how to choose which of several possible options, from initiating a research or QI project to taking a ‘wait and see’ approach, is most appropriate. Planning for next steps is also discussed.
