DEVELOP AN ANALYSIS 1
Nursing is one ofthe areas that advocates for the inclusion of evidence-basedpractices. According to the Organizational Culture and Readiness forSystem-Wide Integration of Evidence-based Practice survey that wasconducted, various conclusions can be derived. The highest and lowestscores in this study were five and two respectively. The formerindicated “past ready, and onto action” framework whereas thelatter reported a “getting ready” mode (Melnyk &Fineout-Overholt, 2011).
One of the areaswhere the highest scores were obtained related to the instances wherethe evidenced-based practices (EBPs) were considered to be core tothe mission and philosophy of Robert Wood Johnson Hospital inSomerset, New Jersey. Additionally, survey categories regarding theallocation of fiscal resources to support the EBPs also attained highscores. On the other hand, the two classes that had the lowest scoresincluded the basis under which practitioners were likely to model EBPin the clinical settings and, in the determination of the extent towhich sharing the outcomes was part of the organizational culture atRobert Wood Johnson Hospital (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2011).
Based on theresults of the survey that was conducted, it can be established thatthe rationale for the performance related to the nature ofinteractions within the organization. Factors relating to the missionachieved higher ratings whereas categories of the employees such asadministrators, nurses, and physician teams all had scores of 3. Thisscore represented the “been ready but not acting” category. Someof the barriers that were likely to be experienced in this caseincluded a low commitment by administrators to the EBP and lack ofsufficient input by the medical practitioners in generating evidencewhere such do not exist.
In conclusion,the Organizational Culture and Readiness for System-Wide Integrationof evidence-based practice survey indicated a “somewhat” scorefor a majority of the categories (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt,2011). This was an indication that Robert Wood Johnson Hospital hadthe EBP systems ready, but was only waiting for the implementation ofthe relevant practices.
