Session Format: The session will be a case study format, with brief (10 minute) presentations by each presenter, followed by Q&A and group discussion. Objective: The objective of this session is to present different types of scenarios from nursing practice and demonstrate how librarians can provide support for these scenarios based on the steps of evidence-based practice (EBP). The session will provide an overview of the steps (based on Melnyk et al, Evidence-based practice in nursing & healthcare: a guide to best practice, 2019), illustrating their use in a general hospital setting. Each presenter will present a different scenario and facilitate the development of a clinical question, using the PICOT model (Patient population/disease, Intervention or Issue of interest, Comparison intervention or Issue of interest, Outcome, Time). Each presenter will then outline an approach to addressing the question following the steps of EBP, varying by the specific context of the question: point of care, institutional EBP culture, primary research, systematic reviews. Q&A and group discussion will follow. Instructional
Methods: The case study format will immerse participants in a simulated clinical environment where they will participate in developing a clinical question for different nursing practice needs. Participants will hear from expert librarians and have the opportunity to share their own experiences supporting nursing practice with their peers. This will serve to educate participants about practices they can potentially apply within their own institutions. Participant Engagement: Participants will work together to develop clinical questions using PICOT for 4 different clinical scenarios. During Q&A and the group discussion, they will be encouraged to ask questions as well as discuss their own experiences supporting point of care, EBP, primary research, and/or systematic reviews.

Upon completion, participants will be familiar with Melnyk's seven steps in evidence-based practice.
Participants will be able to interpret and present a clinical question using the PICOT model.
Participants will understand how to provide best available evidence dependent on the context of the question.
Participants will know about the different ways librarians can support EBP within nursing practice.
