[Research Presentation] Purpose: To identify self-reported perceptions of the barriers to research utilization by Turkish staff nurses working in a university hospital and to ascertain if involvement in research-related activities influenced their perception of the barriers. Methods: This is a descriptive, cross sectional study with a sample of 329 staff nurses working in a university hospital. Two instruments were used: a demographics questionnaire that also investigated research activities and the Barriers Scale to measure perceptions to research utilization. An additional item, "studies are published in English" was added to the scale. Results: The lack of time to implement new ideas was the most frequently, 84.5%, perceived barrier. The second most frequently, 83%, perceived barrier was difficulty in reading English. The top six barriers were all related to the setting. Additionally, research-active nurses found insufficient time less of a barrier but unawareness of research findings and being isolated from knowledgeable colleagues as greater barriers to research utilization. Conclusion: Turkish nurses' perception of barriers is similar to the findings in other international studies, that is, the top six barriers were related to setting or the organizational barriers. Language barrier compares similarly with other international studies that investigated this variable.
