Abstract:
Organizational characteristics and evidence-based practice
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2000
Author:Everett, L.
P.I. Institution Name:Univ. of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics
Title:
Contact Address:200 Hawkins Drive, T-100 GH, Iowa City, IA, 52242, USA
Purpose: The social system has a high degree of influence on adoption of an innovation such as a research-based practice guideline. This paper overviews the difference and similarities between evidence-based practice and research utilization and summarizes the research regarding organizational characteristics that promote use of research in practice. Conceptual Framework: Roger's model on diffusion of innovation provides the conceptual framework for this review. Methods: Studies on the use of research in practice, evidence-based practice, and translational research were reviewed. Results: Organizational characteristics that influence the use of research to guide practice include: 1) verbal and written communication by senior leadership; 2) explicit performance criteria regarding practitioners use of evidence to guide practice; 3) stated expectations that policies, procedures, and protocols are evidence-based, 4) access to clinical researchers, 5) authority to change practice, and 6) support from peers, other disciplines and administrators to align practice with evidence-based guidelines. Four tools for assessing the organizational environment and the psychometric properties of each are also reviewed. Conclusion: Nurse executives striving to provide an environment conducive to research-based practice should consider how critical organizational characteristics can be operationalized and how these variables may be periodically assessed using a set of standardized instruments.
