Module 5 How did the readings influence your perceptions of your own clinical decision making? In my work place, we have computerised access to CPG's. I frequently have students that come through and I have had the opportunity to show the students the CPG's when they have questions on something. As I read the articles, I thought about the way that I make decisions. I feel like I don't have a lot of nursing background but I feel a certain type of nursing intuition. Weighing my decisions on when to go with evidence based practice and when to go with my nurisng intuition. When I have difficult decisions to make, I will often rely on the combination of my own clincal judgement, and the second and third opinion of other Dr's and nurses. I have turned to CPG's and current research at times. I found the readings to be interesting and informative. I want to do all that I can to be sure that I am an evidence-based nurse. I work at a facility that I feel facilitates this through the use of technology.
