This quality improvement project explored whether participation in an evidence-based practice (EBP) course influenced the use of EBP in day-to-day nursing practice. Data from two focus groups highlighted the impact of the EBP course, areas for further development, and potential barriers to the utilization of EBP. The authors found that educational offerings that remove barriers to EBP (knowledge and time) improve nurses' utilization of EBP. Ongoing professional development support is needed to foster the use of EBP in practice.
