The  Evidence-Based Nursing (EBN) Committee at Hamilton Health Sciences has devised a method for helping nurses overcome two often-cited barriers to evidence-based nursing:  insufficient time to read journal articles, and lack of skill in evaluating the quality of research. Committee members have developed and now utilize a priority rating process to assess abstractions of relevant primary studies and reviews published quarterly in the journal Evidence Based Nursing. Completing the rating instrument for each abstract and its associated commentary involves considering a number of factors that contribute to a global priority rating of 1 to 7 (with 7 being the highest priority for recommendation of findings to relevant settings). Studies and reviews with mean ratings of at least 5 are sent to appropriate clinical programs and, using a pre-developed form, the contact person advises the Committee of  a) the applicability of the research findings, b)  whether the findings have already been incorporated into clinical practice, or c) whether the findings are important enough to warrant starting a process to consider implementing the findings. If findings have not yet been integrated into practice, the EBN Committee supports staff in the setting by suggesting categories of interventions they might use. A status report is sought at regular intervals. The process was piloted and refined, and since January 2005 has been conducted quarterly. Though the majority of abstracts from the 2005 issue were deemed potentially relevant to clinical programs before being submitted to the rating process, 40% were actually recommended as high priority for dissemination. This targeted approach ensures relevance and importance while reducing the response burden on clinical programs. Currently, evaluation efforts are examining the dissemination and uptake processes and the extent to which the implementation of findings has taken place.
