Nursing home (NH) care and resident outcomes are of increasing concern. An instrumental component of improving outcomes is valid research/data to support needed change. Few research universities have been involved in community-based projects; and, more specifically, in long-term care facilities. This is a model with potential to yield positive and important outcomes and one that is vital to the increasing emphasis on community-based services. Engaging NHs to participate in research is often complicated by a number of barriers both within the university in terms of compliance with IRB expectations, as well as barriers within the NHs themselves. The study, "Improving Continence and Pain in Long-Term Care: the MTRAIN Intervention" (MTRAIN), is a federally funded translational research grant (R01 NR009678) being conducted in 50 Iowa NHs. This is a quasi-experimental study with repeated measures of outcomes for nursing home facilities, staff and residents. Nursing homes are matched for egis, size, rural/urban and then assigned randomly to intervention or control sites. Using the MTRAIN intervention study as an example, this presentation will address general barriers arising from university policies, or lack of specific policies, and interpretations of Federal guidelines from the Department of Health & Human Services. From the beginning of recruitment to initiation of research, 8 months elapsed before full IRB approval was obtained. Additionally, variables will be addressed that are barriers within NHs in implementing evidence-based practice such as those encountered with regard to recruitment of facilities, staff and facility engagement and retention, and challenges in obtaining resident consent/assent. Strategies will be discussed that moderated the barriers and led to a 62% NH response rate and 77% staff response rate. Results presented will contribute new knowledge about how to more effectively engage in research in community-based facilities.
