Abstract:
Despite the conduct of considerable nursing research in the past three decades, the utilization of research findings in the clinical setting has not been fully implemented. It is a goal of nursing to have a practice based on research and research grounded in clinical practice. The implementation of an integrated research utilization in one tertiary care hospital will be used as an example of a method to develop research based practice as well as a program of practice based research. In this facility, nursing staff had been involved in the conduct of nursing research studies, but the utilization of research findings was not well integrated into practice. The literature was searched for a model of research utilization that incorporated the existing structure of the nursing department to facilitate the utilization of existing research findings. The Integrated Research Utilization Model (Keefe, 1993) was adopted because it " integrates and distributes the process of research utilization among existing nursing staff and established committees". The committees included in this model were the research, procedure, education, and quality assurance committees. All of these committees existed in our facility. In our adaptation of the Keefe model, the research committee was responsible for the critical review of existing literature and a determination of whether sufficient literature existed for research utilization project or whether additional research was needed. The procedure committee was responsible for developing procedures based on the research reviewed by the research committee. In the education committee, the education of existing and new nursing staff was planned and implemented for the research based procedures. The quality assurance committee evaluated the implementation of the procedures and its effect on the quality of patient outcomes. In contrast to the Keefe model, which assigned the responsibility of determining areas for research to the research committee, all of the committees in our facility shared the responsibility for identifying opportunities to implement research based practice. As the structure of the nursing department has changed we have been able to implement improvements in the model to mirror the existing structure. Through the use of this model changes in practice have been made based on published research and research conducted at our facility.
