EBP PROPOSAL SECTION D2An EBP project builds on the research of other practitioners. This project utilized Stetler model of change based evidence-based practice and an extensive review of all the pertinent literature available. This essay will outline the Stetler model and discuss how it’s framework willfacilitate the development and implementation of the project.Model description.The Stetler model of evidence-based practice was used to guide the implementation of this project. This model was chosen due to its incorporation of both individual practitioner and organizational components. Also, the similarities of the model to the nursing process increased relatability for the nursing staff which facilitated the acceptance of the change implementation. The Stetler model was first described in 1976, then updated in 1994 and 2001 (Melnyk &Fineout-Overholt, 2011). Revisions to the model included incorporating emerging evidence-based practice concepts and categorizing evidence as external research, conducted outside the organization, or internal research, from within the organization. The Stetler Model was created to simplify the application of research findings at an individual level. This helps make the research “real” for students and bedside practitioners (Stetler, 1994).This is a practitioner oriented model because it focuses on critical thinking of the bedside nurse, findings of individualpractitioners, and evidence from external sources combined to achieve best practice. Using internal and external evidence, healthcare organizations can make changes on individual units or organization wide.
