2 Evidence-based practice modules: Model and Barriers High nursing turnover rates and burnout tend to go hand in hand. Burnout occurs in almost every healthcare professional setting such as hospitals, clinics, home health, and especially high stress areas. Some high stress areas include ICU, oncology, hospice, and pediatric oncology. Evidence-based practice (EBP) in efforts to remedy high turnover rates and burnout are unheard of in our facility. Nurses in the facility have increased burnout due to being short staffed, increased patient acuity, lack of support from administration, and fatigue (Beidas et al., 2016). Burnout leads to a higher turnover rate in facilities and decreased patient satisfaction. Increased employee turnovers has negative effects on the facilities such as decreased compassion from providers, decreased staffing, and increased cost related to employee overtime and training. Barriers in my current facility consist of lack of knowledge of evidence-based practice , lack of support from administration, lack of authority for nurses to make changes, and lack of motivation from employees because they do not believe things will change (Houser & Oman, 2011).
