Purpose: The Research Dissemination Core (RDC) of the Gerontological Nursing Intervention Research Center (GNIRC) (P30 NR03979) is described. Conceptual Framework: The Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice is used for this core. Methods: Methods include development and dissemination of research-based protocols (RBPs) to nurses and consumers; evaluation of evidence-based protocols by users; nurse residency in research utilization (RU); national conferences; publication of the Iowa Aging Newsletter; testing the effectiveness of RBPs; and a train-the-trainer program on RU. Results: RBPs on 21 topics (hydration) have been developed and over 5,000 copies disseminated. The RBPs are abstracted for inclusion in the AHCPR sponsored National Guideline Clearinghouse and for publication in JGN. On a scale of 1 (very dissatisfied) to 10 (very satisfied), degree of satisfaction by users of the RBPs was rated 8.6; ease in using the protocol was rated 8.4; and usefulness of the RBP service was rated 8.65. Most responders (89%) were able to implement the protocol within 9 months. Nurses rated the residency program as professionally motivating; energizing them to implement RU strategies at their place of employment. Conclusions: The RDC has been successful in disseminating research-based information to nurses who care for the elderly.
