An innovative model for getting research into practice is ôNew
Knowledge Discussion Groups.ö The New Knowledge Discussion Group Model has
been evolving for sixteen years and fifteen groups have been conducted and
evaluated in acute care, community, interdisciplinary and rural settings.
The model involves a contract with health practitioner participants to
read articles on an identified topic and to attend three to four group
sessions. A group co-leader often contacts the author (researcher) of one
of the articles to share information and to ask questions. Participants
express great satisfaction with participation in the discussion groups.
Many groups have requested that the groups continue. Through follow-up
interviews, group members report changes they have projected for the work
setting. Recently, the focus for the groups has been on implementation.
For instance, one group of nurses in acute care, wanted to determine ways
the staff could increase nursing recognition on the unit. Another group of
administrators wanted to know what helps with nursing satisfaction in
acute care settings. Therefore, research on the topic was shared so that
the groups could plan for implementation on the units. The purpose of this
research is to evaluate implementation through New Knowledge Discussion
Groups with 8-10 staff members in two different acute care units. An
action research framework is being used. The method includes action
research through documenting the process of the intervention. In addition,
a pre and post open-ended assessment tool developed by the researcher will
be used for participants. Interviews regarding implementation will also be
held with five unit personnel (including the unit manager) at three months
after the group sessions. A summary of the action research process,
assessment tools and interviews will be shared to identify possible
implementation evidence.
