– Students struggle to see how evidence contributes to practice.
– Students need to learn how knowledge relates to practice in general to see the relevance of research findings to EBP.
– Discretion and critical thinking are the most needed competencies for EBP.
– Knowledge transfer related to clinical problems should be prioritized teaching EBP.
SELECTED EXTRACT (selected by Neil PW)
‘The majority of the students do not have the eager and motivation needed to gather, evaluate and use information (Burns and Foley, 2005). They expect the right answer served from authorities like teachers, experienced nurses, physicians, and do not see themselves as active knowledge creators.’
