An instrument to assess research utilization barriers may be helpful in planning strategies for integrating research findings into practice. While the 1987 Factors Affecting Use of Research in Practice questionnaire (Funk, Champagne, Tornquist & Wiese, 1987) has been used for this purpose, recent literature suggests that additional barriers may exist due to emerging complexities in health organizations. A survey consisting of the Factors Affecting Use of Research in Practice questionnaire, additional newly developed questions, and a demographic survey was sent to 4,400 hospital-based RNs from seven hospitals. A total of 2,316 (53%) completed surveys were returned. Factor analysis of items within the original instrument was not consistent with subscales originally reported. Additional factor analysis adding the newly developed items resulted in seven subscales (eigenvalues > 1.0) with three to eight items (factor loadings >0.40). The organizational complexity subscale accounted for most of the variance (25%) and was primarily made up of the new items. Cronbach's alphas ranged from 0.62-0.83. Use of the instrument demonstrated statistically significant differences between large and small institutions on four of seven subscales. While further development is indicated, such an instrument could be useful in developing research utilization strategies that may be sensitive to organization complexity.
