Disseminating research findings in accurate, efficient, and understandable ways to nurses and other clinicians is challenging. Typically, clinicians interested in evidence-based practice (EBP) have had to retrieve, review, and integrate knowledge from research reports to update best practices for their clinical settings. Barriers to the success of this approach include the lack of time, expertise, and resources needed for nurses to complete these activities. One approach to overcoming these barriers is to disseminate the results of synthesized research reviews directly to the clinicians. This pilot study has 3 aims:  (a) to explore the relative effectiveness of different methods of delivery (mail versus e-mail) of systematic research reviews to nurses and physician assistants (PAs); (b) to explore whether a graphic presentation (forest plots) of the research review is more effective for communicating research results than a brief written report; and (c) to explore correlates of the study?s outcomes. The outcomes are clinicians? awareness, understanding, and perception of usefulness of the information, and acceptability of the delivery method.  This study will use a 2 by 3 factorial design. The first factor is ?Method of Delivery? (mail versus e-mail). The second factor is ?Nature of Presentation? (brief report, graphic, or both). Purposively selected units in a large metropolitan hospital system will be randomly assigned to 7 groups created by this design. Additionally, master?s prepared nurses and PAs in sister hospitals will receive an intervention randomly assigned to their hospital. The researchers will disseminate the results of this systematic review as brief reports or graphics in 4 weekly messages. Data will be collecting using the Research Dissemination Questionnaire (RDQ), developed by the investigators for the study. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics, multivariate analysis of variance and covariance, and follow-up post hoc analyses to explore differences across the intervention and comparison groups.
