Abstract:
Translating Evidence into Standards and Expectations: Reconnecting to Care
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006

Title:Director Nursing Placement, Development and Practice; Adjunct Professor Humber Institute and University of Toronto
Leaders in practice settings have indicated that research is often unattainable by clinical nursing staff in their everyday life. Nurses do not usually have the time and the experience to research the current literature and translate knowledge into meaningful guidance for practice. Kitson, Harvey & McCormack (1998) first published an accessible model for translating and utilizing research in care settings. Since this initial publication, both Kitson and McCormack have researched the specific elements of the model, in particular the notions of context and facilitation. This paper demonstrates how this framework was utilized to translate research on professional practice, theories of nursing practice and of change management into assisting 250 nursing staff in meeting or exceeding standards and expectations based on this body of evidence. The paperl highlights the grid used to assess overall performance, the process to measure and monitor practice change and to utilize facilitators to best meet the evidence and the context in which each sub-group of nurses work. Outcome measures around patient safety, meeting standards and practice expectations were presented.
