Title:Deputy Director
Objective: The purpose of this program was to teach nurses understanding the process of utilizing research findings into nursing practice. Design: A one-year pre-tested and post-tested control group quasi-experimental design was used. Sample: Control group, 39 ICU training nurses. Experimental group, 61 research utilization training nurses. Setting: A medical center in Taipei Taiwan. Concept: The effect of a research utilization program using Stetler (1994) research utilization model on the nurses was examined. Measures: A research utilization program included 40 hours of lecture and one year practical training was planned as a research intervention. Research instruments included research utilization questionnaire (RUQ) and research participation questionnaire (RPQ). Findings: For experimental group, there was significant difference in research utilization at pretest, 6-month, and 1-year post-test (McNemar test, p < .05). There was significant difference in research participation at pretest, 2-month, 6-month, and 1-year post-test (Friedman test, X2 = 90.54, p < .05). For control group, there was no statistically significant difference in either research utilization or participation in this year. Conclusions: The research utilization program showed significant effects on promoting the research participation, and increasing the research utilization. Implications: These results lead the path of nurses to improve the quality of nursing interventions and patient outcomes, to foster critical thinking and decision-making, to enrich the practice environment, and to improve customer’s satisfaction.
