Abstract:
Problem/Purpose/Objectives: Identify attitudes towards research and barriers to and facilitators of staff nurses' involvement in a clinical nursing research project. Significance: Implementation of the CNS role includes facilitating staff nurses' use of research findings and participation in research projects. Identification of factors that enhance or impede staff nurse participation in research will assist CNSs in developing research programs. Design: Descriptive Methods: A 66-item anonymous questionnaire was distributed to staff nurses who worked on 3 nursing units where a nursing research study had been recently completed. Perceptions of attitude, availability, support, and use related to nursing research were measured with items from a scale designed by Champion and Leach (1989). Investigator-developed items measured nurses' attitudes about the utility and feasibility of the interventions tested in the original study. Findings: Forty-three nurses returned questionnaires; approximately half had volunteered to participate in the original study. Reasons for participating included benefit to patients, self, researcher, and nursing practice. Reasons for not participating were related to concerns about time entailed and disruption in routine. Younger nurses and nurses who read nursing journals more frequently had more favorable attitudes towards research. Implications for Nursing Practice: The conduct and utilization of nursing research requires support and involvement of nursing staff. Identifying factors that inhibit and facilitate their participation in and use of research can guide CNSs in developing strategies to promote evidence-based practice.
