Psychiatric nursing practice continues to be strongly influenced by
tradition, unsystematic trial and error, and authority, rather than by
scientific evidence. Yet, the impetus and need for quality psychiatric
care that is based on the best and most current empirical research is well
documented. Purpose: This State of the Evidence Review described the
quality and quantity of published research recently disseminated to
practicing psychiatric nurses. Theoretical Framework: The Hirsh Model for
summarizing the extant research published in clinical nursing journals
provided the framework for identifying relevant journals, reviewing the
number of research articles, and organizing their content into similar
themes. Sample: All data-based studies (N=292) published in the five
existing clinical psychiatric nursing journals from January 2000 through
December 2003 were evaluated. Method: Content analysis was used to
determine current research foci and the number of studies within each of
them. Results: Five foci emerged: global perspectives, psychiatric nurses,
family caregivers, clients across the lifespan, and nursing interventions.
Results showed 85% of the studies (n=249) occurred in the USA. Nearly 24%
(n=70) examined characteristics of psychiatric nurses. Family caregivers
were subjects in 13% of the studies (n=37) while 63% (n=185) focused on
recipients of mental health care across the lifespan, including youth (5%;
n=15), adults (52%; n=153), and elders (6%; n=17). Nursing interventions
were tested in only 9% (n=27) of the studies. Conclusion: The findings
describe the current state of published psychiatric nursing research and
potential areas for future growth, including the need for increased
dissemination of intervention research to practicing nurses. Annual
updates of this content analysis will keep psychiatric nurse researchers
and clinicians informed of progress toward disseminating research for
evidence-based psychiatric nursing practice with future consumers of
mental health services.
