Abstract:
Problem: Clinical inquiry through conducting and utilizing research is one of the foundational characteristics of CNS practice. Actualizing this component of practice becomes challenging due to limited resources of time, money and patients. Purpose/Objectives: To devise an innovative method to conduct and utilize research when time is a limited commodity for busy CNSs. Description: The practice innovation focused on CNS colleagues within an integrated healthcare system joining forces to foster clinical inquiry through the conduct and utilization of research within the cardiovascular nursing specialty. The CNSs collaborated and divided the workload by sharing the responsibilities of reviewing the literature, writing research protocols and Institutional Review Board (IRB) applications. Once the protocol was to be implemented, additional benefits of CNS collaboration included enrollment of patients, delivery of interventions, collection of data, and dissemination of results. In addition, CNSs shared resources and tools to bring the research to the staff and utilize the findings in practice. Outcomes/Conclusion: Combining the forces of 3 CNSs enabled research experiences that otherwise would not have been possible. Presently, 2 studies have been completed and are being written up for publication. Implications for Practice: Collaborating with other CNS colleagues allows the research role to be actualized by dividing the work. Each CNS can take "turns" drafting a research protocol, including being the principal investigator, going through the IRB process, and presenting the results.
