Institutional barriers to evidence-based practice stem from the lack of a culture that encourages practice with the support of administrative management. The purpose of this review is to evaluate the effectiveness of studies with high level of evidence used in psychiatric nursing. Nursing researchers have found that facilitating and complicating evidence-based practices are affected by two factors, individual and institutional. At the individual level, the most common obstacles arise from nurses' lack of time and resources for evidence-based practice, and the lack of knowledge and skills to reach the best evidence.
