Abstract:
HEALTHCARE ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION: The Interdisciplinary Health Research Consultant-Professor in Residence Program is a partnership between the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) School of Nursing (SN), the New Jersey Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Center for Evidence Based Practice, and Morristown Memorial Hospital/Atlantic Health (MMH/AH). BACKGROUND OF PRACTICE INNOVATION: This collaboration came about as a creative approach to meet the mutual needs of MMH to pursue research and evidence-based practice consistent with continuing Magnet designation while meeting the needs of SN in having a productive research-active faculty providing leadership and consultation for our partner clinical agencies. This partnership is very much driven by the talent and interest of the participating faculty member and is the result of candid ad hoc discussions between this faculty member and the nursing leadership at MMH. PRACTICE INNOVATION PURPOSE: To determine whether an Interdisciplinary Health Research Consultant-Professor in Residence Program could be developed to meet the mutual needs of MMH to pursue research and evidence-based practice (EBP) consistent with continuing Magnet designation while meeting the needs of SN in having a productive research-active faculty providing leadership and consultation for our partner clinical agencies. PRACTICE INNOVATION OBJECTIVES: This research scholar works closely with nurses and other health professionals at MMH/AH to: (1) identify and evaluate existing mechanisms to support interdisciplinary health research and evidence based practice; (2) implement the findings of published research using evidence based practice strategies; (3) replicate selected interdisciplinary research studies; (4) conduct original interdisciplinary research studies; (5) seek intra-/extramural funding to support interdisciplinary research studies; and (6) support requirements for American Nurses' Credentialing Center (ANCC) accreditation for Magnet designation. PRACTICE INNOVATION IMPLEMENTATION: The Professor in Residence: (1) facilitates the development of the interdisciplinary health research infrastructure at MMH (e.g., MMH Research Council participation, continuing education, journal review, etc.); (2) identifies and facilitates MMH staff who wish to plan and participate in interdisciplinary health research activities; (3) implements and facilitates approved interdisciplinary health research protocols (e.g., design, data collection, data analysis, reporting of findings at professional conferences and in scholarly journals, etc.); and (4) assists in investigating the availability and applying for intra-/extramural funding to support approved interdisciplinary health research protocols. PRACTICE INNOVATION OUTCOMES: The Interdisciplinary Heath Research Consultant-Professor in Residence Program collaboration among UMDNJ-JBI-MMH has been successful in its first two years. We attribute this largely to the culture of Magnetism which has evolved at MMH over time since its designation as a Magnet institution during the first year Magnet-designation was available. MMH nurses have implemented numerous research and evidence-based practice (EBP) projects and have presented podium and poster presentations at a number of national and international research and EBP conferences. MMH also hosts an annual nursing research and EBP conference to which we invite participation of nurses and other health professionals from MMH and throughout the region. This conference has been very well attended and features a nationally known nurse scholar. SN faculty members have begun programs of research at MMH and have been invited to give presentations on scholarly research topics both at the Nursing Research Council meetings and our annual research/EBP conferences. MMH nurses are collaborating with physicians, social workers, nutritionists, spiritual care and other health professionals to conduct both replication and original nursing and interdisciplinary research studies in efforts to answer important practice questions. Several of our protocols have received intra- and extramural funding and we anticipate more and continued success in the future. CONCLUSIONS: We recommend that other schools of nursing pursue similar opportunities for collaboration and partnerships with clinical agencies. We believe that the culture of scholarly research and EBP at MMH has been advanced through: the leadership provided by a supportive administration; a shared governance structure that drives full participation of nurses; and the partnering of three institutions whose human resources are committed to scientific research and excellence in EBP.
