Co-Authors:Willaim Reynolds, PhD, MPhil, RMN, RGN, RNT; Elsabeth Jensen, RN, MScN; Mary- Lou Martin, RN, MScN; Siobhan Sharkey, PhD, RMN; Susan Ouseley, MEd; Patricia Sealy, RN, PhD; Georgiana Beal, RN, PhD, CPMHN[C]
Objective: To examine strategies introducing best practice related to transitional discharge care into selected psychiatric settings. Design & Sample: This project identifies structures and processes supporting Knowledge Translation. Resulting framework implemented and tested using empirically supported transitional discharge model. Recent studies (Forchuk et al, 2002; Reynolds et al, 2002) support this study. Opportunity exists testing framework associating knowledge translation as transitional discharge model is adapted, or not, in original Ontario control wards (Forchuk et al, 2002), Scottish wards, and two additional Canadian hospitals. Methods: Focus groups with staff contribute features of Knowledge Translation model. Using a delayed implementation control group design (Fitz-Gibbon & Morris, 1987), wards will be randomly selected to the order in which they will receive implementation strategies. Wards wait to receive strategies, and serve as control. All wards participate in implementing transitional discharge model. Design allows “between ward” and “pre/post intervention” comparisons. Findings: Primary outcome in degree of intervention implementation. Other quantitative staff measures; staff quality of work life, client functioning, ward stay length, re-admissions. Implications: Translation of research knowledge is essential to the research process. (CIHR 2002). Ethnographic qualitative analysis describes strategy usefulness and evolving process on wards. Successful strategies are useful across stakeholder groups and different countries. Results: Available 2006. References: Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
