Self-Efficacy-Based Training for Research
Literature Appraisal
A Competency for Evidence-Based Practice

Teri Lynn Kiss, MS, MSSW, RN, CCRN ƒ Maureen O’Malley, PhD, RN ƒ
Thomas J. Hendrix, PhD, RN

Evidence-based practice requires nurses to integrate research

findings into patient care. The lack of skill and confidence

in effective literature appraisal remains a barrier for many

nurses.The authordescribes a self-efficacy-based pilot project

designed to enhance nurses’ skill and confidence, thus
increasing their ability and willingness to critically evaluate

research findings. After the intervention, nurses were better

prepared to critically appraise the literature and, through

enhanced readiness, were more inclined to make

evidence-based practice a clinical reality. This approach

may be beneficial to staff development educators to

develop and enhance an evidence-based practice culture.

E
vidence-based practice (EBP) integrates the use
of research findings, clinical expertise, and pa-
tient preferences to improve the effectiveness of

healthcare delivery (Melynk & Fineout-Overholt, 2005)
and has been demonstrated to improve patient care out-
comes by 28% (Heater, Becker, & Olson, 1988). How-
ever, many clinicians do not use the principles of EBP
(Melnyk, 2006), resulting in a research-to-practice gap at-
tributable to clearly identified barriers (Funk, Champagne,
Wiese, & Tornquist, 1991; Hutchinson & Johnston, 2006;
Sams, Penn, & Facteau, 2004).

One barrier for nurses is a lack of skill and confidence
in their ability to effectively assess the literature (Funk
et al., 1991; Hutchison & Johnston, 2006), and it is this
critical evaluation that is an essential step of the EBP
process (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2005). Although
research classes have been a core component of nursing
curricula since the 1950s, more training is needed be-

cause research-related skill attainment continues to re-
main a challenge to most working nurses (Hutchison &
Johnston, 2006; Witzke et al., 2008). Enhancing research
evaluation skills makes it more comfortable for nurses
to participate in the EBP process (Krugman, 2003; Ryan
& Aloe, 2005). Education alone is insufficient; the at-
tainment of knowledge through an educational process
does not necessarily lead to associated changes in prac-
titioner behavior or the improved clinical outcomes that
should necessarily follow (Bradley, Nordheim, DeLa Harpe,
Innvaer, & Thompson, 2005; Thompson, Estabrooks, Scott-
Findlay, Moore, & Wallin, 2007). The knowledge must be
applied to effect behavior change (Sandars & Heller, 2006),
and the ability to identify valid and reliable research, cou-
pled with the willingness to apply the results into clinical
practice, is necessary to realize the goal of incorporating
enhanced
