Literature suggests that self-efficacy, or confidence related to evidence-based practice, may predict competency or performance related to implementing evidence-based practice. This tool was developed to help measure nurses’ confidence in EBP skills and measure effects of educational training programs to improve EBP self-efficacy and EBP Skills.
Users are asked to share findings and submit data to us for further psychometric evaluation (instructions will be e-mailed to you).
