Title:Lecturer
[Scientific session research presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the challenges and facilitators of, research utilization among Registered General Nurses (RGNs) in the Republic of Ireland. Background: Contemporary professional and governmental espousal of nursing research in Ireland reflects progressive affirmation of a research-based culture in nursing practice. However, these developments are paralleled with fundamental changes in nursing in Ireland. These include changing structures in nursing management, changes from hospital-based education to third level education, and recruitment and retention difficulties. This state of flux within the health service provides an opportune juncture to explore attitudes and perceptions of research utilization among. Methodology: A mixed method approach was chosen to assess the multitude of variables associated with research utilization. The use of stratified random sampling allowed greater confidence in the representativeness of the sample. Data was collected using a postal questionnaire with a Likert scale as the dominant response format. Issues of reliability and validity were addressed to appraise the value of the data collection instrument. Data collected was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and open-ended questions were analysed using thematic content analysis. Findings: Analysis of the data identified organisational characteristics as the greatest barriers to research utilization, while demographic factors had little impact on responses given. RGNs identified six facilitators of research utilization, with education and management as core elements.
