    Objective: To understand the evidence-based practice readiness of developing evidence application projects in a 3A-level general hospital in Beijing, to identify barriers to evidence-based practice and to promote the successful application of evidence.

    Methods: All the clinical nurses who are going to participate in the application units of the evidence-based practice project are selected as the survey objects, and the self-made “Basic Information Questionnaire” and “Clinical Readiness to Evidence-based Nursing Assessment (CREBNA)” are used to conduct the survey. The total amounts and subscales are calculated. The factors that influence the score of the total scale were scored and analyzed.

    Results: The CREBNA total score was (119.87±19.18), the evidence subscale score was (47.94±8.54), the organizational environmental subscale score was (36.09±6.11), and the facilitator subscale score was (35.83±7.56). Univariate analysis showed that the total score of the scale was related to years of work, scientific research experience, knowledge of evidence-based care, and participation in evidence-based practice.

    Conclusion: The current evidence-based practice preparation situation is good. It is feasible to carry out evidence-based practice activities in the hospital. The follow-up development plan should be made based on the corresponding obstacle factors.

    Background: Clinical practice guidelines refer to the guidance provided by the expert system to help medical staff and patients decide on appropriate treatments for a specific clinical situation, mainly including guidelines based on expert consensus and evidence-based guidelines. Since there is no research and clinical application of a specific stoma guidance in China. It is of great significance to understand the application status of the recommended guidelines and the influencing factors in promoting the development of stoma care.

    Purpose: To investigate the application status of recommended clinical practice guidelines for stoma nursing in China, and to analyse the reasons for the knowledge and application of recommendations.

    Methods: The Questionnaire on the Application of Recommendations in Clinical Practice Guidelines for Ostomy Nursing was adopted.

    Results: We collected 195 questionnaires and 183 valid questionnaires were available. ①The average knowledge rate of a total of 31 recommendations was 73.65%. The main reasons for unknown were insufficient dissemination and lack of training. ②The average application rate of the 31 recommendations was 58.08%. The overall satisfaction rate of people who used them was high. The main reasons for not applying recommendations were complex.

    Conclusions: Different levels of recommendations awareness and application are different. There is a lack of evidence-based guidelines for clinical practice in ostomy nursing in the field of stoma care in China, which limits the scientific development of stoma care to a certain extent. However, this study provides reference for the future construction of a guidebook adapted to our country's localization.

    Objective  To systematically review the effectiveness of acupoint massage versus normal treatments for acute mastitis. Methods  Databases including CNKI, Wanfang database, VIP, Pubmed, Web of science and Cochrane were searched to collect randomized controlled trials (RCTs) about acupoint massage versus normal treatments for acute mastitis from inception to October 2018. Two reviewers independently screened literature, extracted data, and assessed the risk of bias of included studies. Then meta-analysis was performed using RevMan 5.3.3 software. 

    Results  A total of 16 RCTs involving 2056 patients were included. The results of meta-analysis showed that, compared with normal treatments, acupoint massage could improve the efficiency of clinical treatment [RR = 1.18, 95% CI (1.13, 1.22), P< 0.00001], shorten onset time[MD=-1.69, 95% CI (-1.89, -1.41), P<0.00001], decrease the lump size [MD=-2.64, 95% CI (-4.46, -0.82), P=0.005], and decrease the score of symptoms and signs[MD=-3.88, 95% CI (-7.50, -0.27), P=0.04]. However, there was no significant difference in recurrence rate[RR=0.41, 95% CI (0.11, 1.57), P=0.19] and cure rate[RR=11.82, 95% CI (0.50, 282.04), P=0.13]. 

    Conclusion  The current evidence shows that, compared with normal treatments, acupoint massage can improve the efficiency of clinical treatment, shorten the onset time, and decrease the lump size. Due to the limited quality of included studies, more high quality studies are needed to verify the above conclusion.
