Evidence in Action Rounds is a unit-based interactive forum that assists nurses in defining and discussing evidence-based practice and the evidence-based approach to answering questions using frameworks of the Iowa Model, the Johns Hopkins evidence scale, and nursing sensitive indicators. Patient-specific clinical questions are examined and any gaps or opportunities for improving patient care are addressed with the best evidence available. This combination of librarian and nursing expertise works to familiarize staff nurses with evidence-based resources and translate evidence into practice while minimizing time and resource investment of all involved.
