Title:
Impact of the State of the Science Conference in Translation Research
Abstract:
Impact of the State of the Science Conference in Translation Research
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Cullen, Laura, MA, RN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
Title:Advanced Practice Nurse
Co-Authors:Marita Titler, PhD, RN, FAAN; Linda Q. Everett, PhD, RN, CNAA
Purpose: To describe the impact of the U.S. Invitational conference: Advancing Quality Care Through Translation Research (October 13-14, 2003). Methods: A repeated measures post-test design was used to evaluate conference outcomes. 12 papers on translation studies and analytic methods were interspersed with moderated sessions. Questionnaires, developed by the Steering Committee, were used to evaluate conference impact. Questionnaire 1, distributed at the end of the conference, collected demographic information, extent of achieving conference objectives, and insights gained for research, practice, public policy, and education. Questionnaire 2 elicited information, at 6 weeks and 8 months after the conference, about sharing and application of knowledge. Findings: Conference objectives were met at 3.5 or higher (1-4 scale). Significant insights learned during the conference included AHRQ funding of TRIP studies, interventions for implementation, a need for models for translation research, the importance of organizational context, and methodologies in translation research. Most participants shared knowledge (6 weeks=91%; 8 months=84.6%) via informal dialogue (62.5%; 50%) and group discussion (57.5%; 31%). Participants reported using the knowledge in: programs of research (6 weeks=74%; 8 months =77%); education (6 weeks=63%; 8 months =58%); and practice (6 weeks=35%; 8 months=15%). Other conference outcomes included 17 scholarly papers on translation science, a future research agenda for translation science, a conference CD-ROM, and a source document for translation science. Implications: This was the first conference to convene nationally recognized nurse scientists in translation research to address important methodological issues and set forth a future agenda for the field. The innovative program was effective in building expertise and understanding of the state-of-the-science and methodologies of translation research, associated issues and challenges, and the future of translation research in advancing systems to support quality nursing care and improve patient outcomes. The extent of co-sponsorship (N=11 organizations) reflects the incredible value organizations hold for translation science.
