Have you implemented a practice change at your work setting based on evidence? Do you want to make a change in your practice based one the evidence, but don't know how?
The ONS Evidence-Based Practice Resource Area Toolkit can help you. The Oncology Nursing Society is seeking examples of evidence-based practice changes that have been implemented to post on the Toolkit. These examples will assist nurses in making future changes, and will also recognize the work that nurses have done to improve oncology nursing-sensitive patient outcomes.
Listed below are the criteria that should be included in the description of your evidence-based practice project.
Provide the original question and the rationale for doing the project, using the PICO format.
P - Patient population of interest
I - Intervention of interest
C - Comparison intervention or status
O - Outcome
Describe the level of evidence for the change in practice
Describe your work setting and the population (in-patient hospital setting, ambulatory center, physician office, adult, pediatric, medical oncology, surgical oncology, etc.).
