  • Overview

    Palladian Partners, an Altarum company, is looking for a part-time Virtual Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Facilitator to provide virtual assistance for multiple military medical facilities as needed. This position will be in support of Palladian’s contract with the TriService Nursing Research Program (TSNRP). TSNRP fosters military nursing excellence by developing and strengthening the TriService community of nurse scholars, by generating new knowledge in military nursing, and by translating that knowledge into practice.

    Responsibilities

    The Virtual EBP Facilitator will support one of several sites where a full-time TSNRP EBP facilitator has been assigned as a way to sustain EBP activities across the Military Health System (MHS).  The primary focus of this role is to supplement EBP mentoring and training efforts at military treatment facilities (MTFs) in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. This includes helping staff develop a strong PICO(T) question, form inter-professional teams, review and synthesize published literature, select appropriate outcome measures, analyze and evaluate the outcomes, and disseminate the results of the project. The Virtual EBP Facilitator may also provide support for organization-wide EBP teams.

     

    The Virtual EBP Facilitator is expected to function autonomously and develop long-term goals with plans to address those goals. The Virtual EBP Facilitator position requires a foundation of clinical knowledge, organizational function, data analysis abilities, and strong written and verbal communication skills.
