Evidence-based practice (EBP) requires a commitment to adopting innovation to change clinical problems. In perinatal and neonatal care, this commitment involves utilization of current best evidence in decision making about patient care for the benefit of mothers, infants, and their families. Embracing EBP can lead to increased patient and professional outcomes, creating synergy that will be welcomed on all levels. Moving toward EBP in this arena is a challenging goal for perinatal nurses, who may encounter many barriers. This article describes the need for "buy in" from key stakeholders at the bedside and within the infrastructure of the organization. Provided herein are stepwise methods to engage nurses in EBP as well as ideas to promote use of research in a way that every patient receives the right care every time. This article provides an overview of how perinatal and neonatal clinicians can shift their focus to embrace EBP and translate research into practice at the bedside.
