I’m working on a nursing discussion question and need support to help me learn.
Some barriers or obstacles that can affect effect implementation of EBP in nursing are lack of resources, especially adequate staffing on a unit, lack of education of fellow nurses on the subject matter and support of management. EBP will be effectively implemented when the nurse has done adequate research and understands the subject matter, it’s advantages and disadvantages in healthcare delivery. For example, if a unit is always short staffed and the charge nurse must take patients as well as supporting the unit with skills and knowledge, she will not be available to function in that capacity. Facilities must therefore take staffing issues seriously so as to free the charge nurse and other resourceful staff members who can help implement EBP and also help others enforce as well.
