One of the most productive strategies to achieving the safest, high-quality patient care is promoting the widespread use of evidence-based practice (EBP) in clinical settings. Despite the considerable emphasis and support for EBP, many clinicians still fail to translate current research into clinical practice. To address the pervasive lack of EBP among clinicians, an EBP project was developed at an acute care pediatric facility to increase EBP utilization via the implementation of a virtual EBP educational program. The findings from this project describe the establishment of an EBP educational program with the intent to create a critical mass of EBP mentors and implications for nurse leaders to improve EBP implementation among clinicians.
