Relevance of Postgraduate research to community
My postgraduate research study which was published in African Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health, Vol. 6, Iss. 2, 18 Apr 2012, was on factors influencing application of evidence-based practice among nurses. Research finding brought to limelight the major factors that affect application of evidence-based nursing as: level of education, ability to review literature, and nursing practice guide (hospital policy and ward routines). Nurse being the backbone of health care delivery, it is important.therefore the hospital management invest in and develop comprehensive policy that entrenches EBP in patients' care. In addition, a deliberate policy stance to train more nurses to degree and postgraduate levels will positively impact on adoption of EBP.
