Title:
Partnership Strategy to Increase Research Utilization
Abstract:
Partnership Strategy to Increase Research Utilization
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Riley, Joann
P.I. Institution Name:Carolinas HealthCare System
Background: Ten graduate-nursing students MSN in a research course were paired with ten clinical nurses in a hospital to design research proposals. This strategy was based on previous research that indicated nurses who are involved in research projects are more likely to develop evidenced-based practices. The partnership also reflected the position of the American Nurses Association (1997) that “clinicians identify relevant clinical problems for investigation; researchers design studies to address these problems” (p.1). Scope: The long-range goal was to improve patient care through utilization of research findings. Short-term goals were (1) to provide graduate nursing students with relevant, timely, useful topics around which to develop research proposals; (2) provide clinical nurses with resources for research efforts; and (3) increase intention to utilize research findings in clinical settings. Methods: Partners scheduled three meetings during the semester to define the research problem, organize the literature review, and design the study. A variety of clinical settings were represented, including emergency department, operating room, rehabilitation center, neonatal intensive care, as well as medical/surgical units and intensive care units. Abroad range of topics included effects of interventions such as music and teaching, as well as descriptions of parents’ perceptions and nurses’ satisfaction. Results: Five of the proposals were descriptive studies; five were experimental. All ten proposals were completed and formally presented. Evaluations of the process by the partners were extremely positive, indicating short-term goals were achieved. At this point, five proposals are being refined for data collection; one research team has begun gathering data. Although it is too soon to determine the long-range success of the partnership, the participants strongly agreed that there was merit in the partnership. Implications: The partners became deeply involved with their projects, and indicated strong intentions to utilize research findings at the conclusion of the studies. Through implementation, improved patient outcomes, customer satisfaction, and reduced costs are expected to be realized.
