Burnout is one of the most recent concerns among nurses in intensive care units and can be influenced by many factors such as emotional exhaustion and depersonalization. This study was carried out to assess the relationship between nurses' burnout and implemented evidence-based guidelines in intensive care unit. This study was conducted at neurological and anesthesia intensive care units of Tanta University Hospital. Design: A descriptive correlational study design was utilized to achieve the aim of the current study. A convenience sample of 97 nurses, two tools were utilized to collect the data. Tool I: nurses' assessment Questionnaire, it consisted of three parts: nurses’ bio-sociodemographic and professional data, burnout risk factors and Maslach burnout inventory scale to assess nurse's burnout. Tool II: Implemented evidence-based guidelines checklist. Results: the most common risk factor (92.8%) among critical care nurses was inappropriate nurse to patient's ratio. Also, it was found that the majority of critical care nurses had poor evidence-based practice regarding ventilator associated pneumonia and Injuries form falls. Conclusion: more than half of the critical care nurses were high risk to burnout that may be critical for implemented evidence-based guidelines. Based on the current study findings it is recommended that the head nurse should take some actions to decline high-risk factors and improve evidence-based practice implementation in intensive care unit.
