Increased emphasis has recently been placed on the importance of research and evidence-based practice (EBP) in order to provide high quality cost-effective care.  Previous research has identified barriers to developing research and evidence-based practice skills in both the clinical and academic settings.  These barriers include lack of time, support, knowledge, resources and negative perceptions of research.  Using the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Standards as a catalyst, a workgroup of clinical nurse specialists, educators, and staff nurses at an urban healthcare system reviewed the literature for strategies to develop research and EBP skills.  In 2002, they contacted the nursing department at a baccalaureate program partner to discuss some collaborative strategies to teach EBP and research.  A planning team developed a program, Research Roundtable.  The initial goals of Research Roundtable were to increase knowledge of the research process of staff nurses and nursing students and to apply research to actual clinical problems. Over a three year period, Research Roundtable evolved from the implementation of a research projects to focusing primarily on the identification of clinical problems that could be analyzed and solved through the use of evidence based practice processes. The project format across the three years included work groups comprised of staff nurses, nursing students, advanced practice nurse facilitators, and nurse faculty consultants. The collaborative approach from the clinical and academic institutions made Research Roundtable a rich learning experience for all participants. The partnership provided the nurses in the healthcare system an opportunity for professional growth and access to research expertise of doctorally prepared faculty. The academic program was enriched by the opportunity to infuse the research course with reality-based clinical examples for student learning. Additionally, faculty participation provided for expanded scholarship.
