15 - Library Participation in Center for Transdisciplinary Evidence-Based Practice (CTEP) Evidence-Based Practice Education

Room: 611

Objectives: CTEP is the Center for Transdisciplinary Evidence-Based Practice, Ohio State University. They provide nurses/allied health with one-week intensive workshops. We were asked to teach the library use part, and we went through the full course to learn all aspects. We formed PICO/t questions, help critique others’ projects, gathered our evidence and helped our classmates.


Methods: We taught the library part, in mentoring time we assisted, and we learned along with the others and did our own project too during the week-long workshops.
Before the workshop the second year, we were asked by several nurses if we could prepare and teach some classes on general computer skills/library skills such as PubMed, CINAHL, and note, so they would feel more comfortable before getting to the CTEP class itself.


Results: We saw the EBP process from start to finish, and learned how nurses research the literature and how they apply it to their practice, learned more about how and why evidence based practice is used, which gives us a better understanding of how we can help.
The prep classes were appreciated and the nurses felt more confident in the CTEP workshop, and we librarians were put to good use since the students knew us and felt comfortable with our knowledge. They do not hesitate to come to us with EBP questions now that the workshop is done, and we have educated nurses since then in this style.
After CTEP, we began using a PICO/T question reminder on our literature search request page, and we now very frequently get literature search requests in the form of a PICO/T question.


Conclusion: Librarians can enrich their own understanding of evidence based practice by participating, as either instructors or students in ‘train the trainers’ type courses of this type. In modern nursing and allied health, EBP is becoming more used as a gold standard, so it is incumbent on medical librarians to have these skills to then teach others. We know that at Children’s, evidence based practice (EBP) is indeed being used, taught to the new nursing grads, and we know that we need to be well-informed on EBP and to become qualified CTEP mentors. In keeping with the spirit of this MLA conference, Dream to assist your clinical staff in getting to know CTEP/EBP more, Dare to become familiar with CTEP or EBP and Do it.
