Abstract:
PURPOSE: The purpose of this research collaborative practice model is to facilitate the development of staff nurse competencies in actively engaging in EBP and research. The focus of this clinical-academic partnership was to link CNS and expert clinicians with nurse scientists. This model represents a joint center for nursing research that is driven by an infrastructure supported by both academic and hospital resources. Description: In 2006, this 541 bed tertiary care facility formally partnered with a local health sciences center school of nursing. This relationship compliments the strengths of both entities by creating a dynamic environment to facilitate relevant research. The expectations of this collaborative partnership included: the promotion of joint research projects; sharing and optimizing resources such as key personnel, clinical facilities, academic resources, and faculty expertise; and planning and implementing joint research conferences. These objectives have been facilitated by: the provision of a joint appointment faculty/clinician position; support for the advancement of nursing education; promotion of research at the unit level; and transition of the nursing culture towards clinical decision-making based on the best scientific evidence available. The critical care CNS has played a pivotal role in the success of this model. Performance measures, deliverables, and a monitoring plan have positively impacted the success of the collaboration. This presentation will provide an overview of the research collaborative practice model that was developed and implemented as the Center for Nursing Research. Strategies used to facilitate an organizational needs assessment, resource management, and program evaluation that can be translated for use in any size acute care facility will be discussed. EVALUATION: The role of the critical care CNS has positively impacted critical care nurses' active participation in journal clubs and dissemination of scholarly activities (poster and oral presentations, and publications). This program is also responsible for developing competencies in critical analysis of scientific evidence, translation of evidence into practice, and the generation of researchable questions. Examples of scholarly works completed by critical care nurses addressing rapid response teams, implementation of end-of-life care order sets, and hypothermia therapy for STEMI will be highlighted.
