are resistant to take up time to research their skills and practice. Not only does the research take up valuable time, comprehending the information is another time management barrier. Research is an extensive practice with a lot of data and information that takes time to understand, meaning the information may be accepted but is it really understood and being used as it should be. Another issue with time management is that when the EBP is researched and understood it must be shared and other health care members must be educated and brought up to speed. This process is also very time consuming and takes committees, and members willing to put in work to educate and make changes to nursing practice. In order to address this barrier specified training time should be set aside for nurses to engage in EBP. Offer yearly skills day, reimbursement for trainings, encourage furthering education, and offer incentives for participants who help teach the EBP or changes in policies. Another barrier to implementing EBP is lack of organizational support. Often times nurses feel the EBP that are researched are not supported by their peers, or their organization leaders. In some cases, nurses that are part of a facility for many years have become “set in their ways” and are resistant to change. A suggestion to help increase the support of the organization is to select leaders to work with other members of the interdisciplinary team, and to work with local universities to research, review, and provide up to date EBP. Collaborating with these members will help encourage and motivate staff members to use EBP especially when they have been a part of the research and implemented change. Offering reimbursement for conferences, or incentives is another way to show organizational support of EBP. References Jyothi, N. (2012).
