Abstract

In our journey from Magnet designation to a Lean hospital, a team of advanced practice nurses, a nurse scientist, and Lean specialists developed a crosswalk of evidence-based practice (EBP) with Lean to explicitly embed the use of evidence in our organization's 4-step problem-solving method. Once finalized, the blended Lean-EBP model now guides improvement work as highlighted in the example of updating our practice for frequency of changing peripheral intravenous catheters.
