[Research Presentation] Most research onáclinical practice guideline implementationáhas been directed to medical practice. However, as nursing and other professions are trying to improve practice via implementation of clinical practice guidelines, it is crucial that evaluation studies examine implementation strategies that are collectively useful for all health careáprofessionals,áas well as, those strategies that may be unique to each profession. This poster willádescribeáa variety ofá evidence-based strategies used to facilitate the uptake of a nursing clinical practice guideline to prevent pressure ulcers. Implementation strategiesádirected to nurses, dieticians, physiotherapists and physicians will be addressed.áA primary intervention was a series of intensive interactive educational champion workshops for pressure ulcer prevention. The target audience was nurses,ádieticians, physiotherapists and physicians. Nurses, dieticians and physiotherapists actively participated in the workshops as a well asáa pressure ulcer prevention educational fair. However, physician involvement has beenálimited. Future strategies being considered to engage physicians are:áenlistingáphysician leadership support foráinclusion in new physician orientations, establishingáa collaborative practice with physician champions, and the introduction of interdisciplinary education rounds.áInitial clinical outcomes haveáshown a dramatic decline in the prevalence of hospital acquired pressure ulcers.
