Abstract:
Developing and implementing strategies to promote and support nursesÆ scholarly activities is an essential component of best practice that results in the wider dissemination of exemplars of best practice through presentations and publications, thus benefiting the entire nursing profession. As nurses at our NCI-designated Cancer Center became increasingly interested in submitting abstracts to conferences for poster and podium presentation and developing manuscripts to submit for publication, we, the nurses, scientists and staff in the nursing research center, recognized the need to devise creative ways to encourage and support these efforts. To promote and facilitate nursesÆ scholarly activities at our institution, we developed a repertoire of strategies that would allow us to provide support for these activities while still carrying out our research studies and the other important work of our nursing research center. We used principles of adult learning theory as the guiding framework for the strategies that we developed to support nursing scholarship. Among the strategies developed and implemented were: ò Scheduling drop-in work sessions for nurses to obtain help developing abstracts, Power Point or poster presentations, or manuscripts ò Providing a mentored writing program for nurses who had never previously published ò Offering in-house peer review of abstracts prior to submission to a national conference, and critique and feedback of planned presentations or research projects ò Establishing an annual Excellence in Writing award for published work ò Instituting a Clinical Scholar Program to recognize nursesÆ collaborative work with our research center Since implementing these strategies, feedback from clinicians and nurse managers has been positive, nursesÆ interest in scholarship has steadily increased, and the number of conference presentations has more than tripled, while the number of manuscripts submitted for publication has grown substantiality. Many of the strategies we describe in this presentation could be easily adapted for use with nurses in a variety of settings. Promoting and supporting nursesÆ scholarly activities directly contributes to evidence-based practice through dissemination and thus has important implications for oncology nursing practice.
