Integrating Research and Practice throughout a University Medical Center and Progressive Health Care Community: The Rochester ARCC Model
Abstract:
Integrating Research and Practice throughout a University Medical Center and Progressive Health Care Community: The Rochester ARCC Model
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Melnyk, Bernadette, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:University of Rochester
Title:Associate Dean for Research and Director of Center for Research & Evidence-Based
The Development of the ARCC Model: Although there has been an explosion of knowledge from research over the past decade, the translation of research findings into practice has yet to be fully actualized. Although it is well-recognized that patients experience the best outcomes through care that is based on sound clinical expertise and the best scientific evidence, health professionals are struggling to deliver evidence-based care because of demanding patient loads and difficulties in keeping pace with the volume of journal articles related to their practice. As a result, the ARCC (Advancing Research and Clinical practice through close Collaboration) Model was developed as a creative strategy to better integrate research and practice as well as to advance evidence-based care throughout an academic health center and progressive health care community. This session of the colloquium will describe the development and implementation of the ARCC model, which evolved out of the desire to reunite multidisciplinary academicians, researchers, and practicing nurses in an effort to accelerate evidence-based practice and the design of studies whose findings could be translated easily into practice. Barriers & Overcoming Strategies: During this session of the colloquium, the focus will be on discussion of the barriers encountered during the initiation of the model and its operation over the past 18 months and strategies used to overcome these barriers. Some of the barriers to be discussed include: a) competing priorities for APNs and ARCC liaison time, b) the need for integration of clinical practice and scholarly practice goals, c) a lack of computer program (statistical) availability among the APNs, and d) a lack of outcome data available to APNs for practice outcomes evaluation. Evaluation - Lessons Learned: During this session of the colloquium, the presenters will focus on discussion of strategies used to evaluate the model. Processes such as obtaining baseline data for evaluation and how this can help guide endeavors and establish priorities will be discussed. Other lessons learned that will be addressed include: a) strategic planning to obtain funding for the model early in the process, b) establishing clinical meaningfulness of all endeavors, c) collaborating with interdisciplinary colleagues for EBP initiatives, d) working with nursing administration to increase involvement of APNs, and e) planning for future priorities, such as teleconferencing EBP Rounds and development of specific EBP guidelines. Pitfalls encountered by the team will be discussed as well as strategies for resolving these difficulties. Opportunities for interactive discussion with participants will be provided.
