Mary Beth Makic is focused on nursing-driven interventions that optimize outcomes of critically ill and acutely ill patients. She has been a clinical nurse specialist in critical care for more than 25 years and is recognized as a leader in evidence-based practice, having developed the first group to champion evidence-based practice at the University of Colorado Hospital in 1999 resulting in an overall reduction in hospital acquired pressure ulcers for more than 10 years well below national benchmarks for academic medical centers (rate < 3%). Dr. Makic has been successful in supporting bedside nurses as they implement evidence-based practice and leading quality improvement practice initiatives. Her passion and commitment focus on applying current evidence and research to nursing assessment/intervention and thereby to maximize patient comfort and outcomes. Her career has been committed to the integration of current best evidence in practice more than two decades resulting in important contributions to nursing science through interprofessional quality improvement (QI) initiatives in the areas of skin care, burn care, and urinary tract infection prevention.  She is a past member of the joint school of medicine and hospital Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety Grant committee reviewing grant applications and providing structured mentorship to QI teams that were awarded funding. She is a recognized as a leader in evidence-based practice, publishing and speaking at national forums of the importance for nurses to translate evidence into practice to optimize patient outcomes. She has lead an EBP series for the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) for the past 9 years providing national lectures and annual publication reviewing the evidence of common nursing interventions and challenging critical care nurses to translate evidence into practice.  She has been an invited keynote speaker at several national conferences. She was inducted as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing in 2012 and the National Academies of Practice in 2013 for her leadership in the application of evidence-based practice in the acute care practice environment. Through challenging nurses to critically review evidence to guide practice, she has mentored nurses in numerous practice changes and quality improvement initiatives to ensure practice is evidence-based. She has numerous publications including acting as a co-editor of a well-known EBP nursing diagnosis book that is used in numerous nursing schools in the United States and England. Awards including teaching and mentorship awards and Colorado AHEC Nightingale Luminary nominee.
