The purposes of this pilot study are to assess: 1. An intervention designed to assist nurses developing research evaluation skills, and 2. Whether there are differences between international and US students' reactions to the use of the program. The intervention focuses on building confidence and skill development in evidence-based review management. Hypotheses were that after receiving the evidence-based practice intervention participants would have: 1. Higher scores on the subscale of perceived research values; 2. Lower scores on the barriers to research utilization subscale; 3. Lower scores on the perceptions of research quality subscale; 4. No differences on the three subscales of the Barrier Scale due to nationality and 5. No differences in the number and type of problems encountered using the database management system due to nationality. The Barriers Scale, which has been used internationally, was used in a pre-posttest design to obtain self-report data regarding nurses' perceptions of barriers to research utilization. The four international and four US subjects acted as their own controls. Additional data will be collected concerning the type of problems the subjects encountered related to database utilization. The education intervention is composed of four two-hour sessions over a period of two weeks. A specially designed workbook details the use of the database, includes exemplars and introduces the complexities of database management. When these techniques are employed in a practice area, the result is a summary of available research that has been evaluated for quality and can guide the development of practice guidelines. Data are being collected and a 2 X 2 ANOVA with repeated measures on one factor will be used to analyze the data obtained from the Barrier Scale. A comparison of number and types of problems will be analyzed using a chi-square.
