To be able to examine contextual factors that can impact patient outcomes and organizational efficiency and effectiveness, researchers need valid and reliable tools. (1) A major barrier to conducting organizational research in nursing is the difficulty in locating appropriate measurement instruments. (2) This poster will introduce STTI members to “The Online Index to Nursing Administration Instruments” which was conceived and developed out of a desire to have a central repository of instruments for measuring contextual factors of interest to nursing administrators and researchers. Allowing access to the database via the Internet ensures this information is available anytime and anywhere in the world (http://www.sph.uth.tmc.edu/chis/scripts/eriksen/). Multiple avenues were used to populate the database. Electronic indexes were searched using keywords that described the contextual variables identified by the project directors. Articles related to instrumentation as well as research studies on the variables of interest were then identified and reviewed. Those instruments that were found to match the identified contextual variables and had enough available information to adequately describe the tool were selected for inclusion in the database. Additional tools were identified from the project directors’ individual collections and an archive of tools located at the University of Iowa School of Nursing. The specific data elements abstracted for inclusion in the database were jointly agreed upon and ACCESS (TM) was used to design the database and store the knowledge. The construction of the database allows for this to be a dynamic resource. Depending on the need of the researcher, a number of approaches can be used to search for instruments. Using the instrument name, author, category and variable/concept the researcher can query the database. A planned enhancement of the database will allow for researchers to update the psychometric properties of their instruments. Currently this is possible via email to one of the project directors.
