Evidence-based practice is integral to the delivery of effective and efficient nursing care. However, translating evidence into practice remains a challenge in health care. To overcome this challenge, the Oncology Nursing Society developed a program, the ONS Foundation Institute for Evidence-Based Practice Change, to provide nurses with the tools they need to translate evidence-based practice to their units. This article reviews the process of implementing the evidence-based practice of guided imagery for pain management on a medical oncology inpatient unit at a comprehensive cancer center.
