EBP is an increasingly being recognized for its reliability and dependability to make decisions regarding patient care, diagnosis, and treatment while increasing clinical expertise. However the barriers exist including frequency required to access information, inability to synthesize amount of literature available, resistance to change to a new practice,and lack of access (Jordan, Bowers, Morton 2016). The biggest issue with implementing EBP seems to be the time associated with the research and accessing that information. A time consuming task, many respondents in this study responded that they would access information/evidence by consulting peers while a lesser percent would do unstructured internet search, use a textbook, and consult peer reviewed journals. With time being an issue, so does the commitment to actually making the change and changing the traditional practices of the organization due to lack of organizational authority.

Yolanda Murphy 5 posts Re:Topic 4 DQ 2 There are many barriers and challenges that can affect the implementation of evidence-based practice. One of the barriers is the overwhelming amount of health care literature and published sources that can prevent the medical professionals to keep up to date. “It is estimated that around 8,000 articles relevant to family practice are published monthly, and a family medicine practitioner would need to dedicate approximately 20 hours a day to stay abreast of new evidence” (Shaheen et al., 2011, p. 230). A rationale for this barrier would be to use tools that aid in choosing the proper literature for review. Another barrier would be to not have enough authority to actually create a change. A rationale for this barrier would be to communicate with leadership and discuss the reason the change is needed. Another barrier is there is not enough time to implement change. By creating a time line, an individual would determine how much time is needed to create a more accurate time frame. Implementing evidence-based practice places pressure on nurses to use credible evidence, use clinical judgements, and consider client values and resources.
