Abstract

EXECUTIVE SUMMARYGetting your arms around the topic of evidence-based staffing is not simple.There is no central place where one can turn to understand what evidence-based staffing is, what is necessary to adopt it, and how to measure its effectiveness.Organizing the evidence into usable resources and tools that can provide the guidance and experience needed to successfully operationalize evidence-based staffing is perhaps our biggest barrier.It was against this backdrop that a model for evidence-based staffing was developed through a national collaborative effort.While change is never easy, it is feasible that letting go of the gross inefficiencies, habits, traditions, policies, and practices that will be replaced by evidence-based staffing will not be so hard.With the movement grounded in science and guided by experience and wisdom, it seems safe to assume that we can get there quickly.
