PURPOSES: The importance of using research findings to guide nursing practice is widely accepted. Disseminating scientific knowledge in accurate, efficient, and understandable ways to nurses and other clinicians remains a challenge. The purposes of this study are to: (a) explore the relative effectiveness of different methods of delivery (mail versus e-mail) of systematic research reviews to nurses and physician assistants (PAs); (b) examine whether a graphic presentation (forest plots) of the research review is more effective for communicating research results than a brief written report; and (c) explore correlates of the study's outcomes. The outcomes are clinicians' awareness, understanding, and perception of usefulness of the disseminated information, and acceptability of the delivery method. THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK: The framework for the study is Rogers' theory of innovation diffusion. METHOD: This study has a 2 by 3 factorial design with an added comparison group. The first factor is "Method of Delivery" (mail versus e-mail). The second factor is "Nature of Presentation" (brief report, graphic, or both). Staff nurses, advanced practice nurses, and PAs from a large medical center in the Midwest will be randomly assigned to 7 groups created by this design. The results of a systematic review from the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews will be disseminated to subjects as brief reports or graphics (forest plots), by either mail or email, in 4 weekly messages. At the end of the intervention, data will be collected using the Research Dissemination Questionnaire, developed by the investigators. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics, multivariate analysis of variance and covariance, and follow-up post hoc analyses to explore differences across the intervention and comparison groups. The study is in progress. [Poster Presentation]
