Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Research - a scary word for most nurses. The majority of direct care nurses typically do not have much exposure to research, but are key to identifying salient trends in clinical practice that warrant investigational research. One facility set out to tap this resource and overcome fears about research in a fun, non-intimidating way. The Nursing Research Council created the Nursing Research Idea Fair, a Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference« session to showcase nurse-driven studies. It is not a traditional Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference« session. Each fair focuses on a different theme which drives the decor, the research-related games, and educational handouts for the participants. The Council aims to maintain the scholarly integrity of research, but also interjects fun to help nurses take their first few steps into research. In addition, nurses submit their clinical ideas for potential development into formal research studies. The Council reviews the ideas and selects one as winner. The winning nurse becomes a co-investigator of the study, co-author of the research article, receives a prize basket, and is sponsored in full to attend the national Magnet conference. The results of the Fair include: over 300 attended each Fair; at least 15 ideas submitted each year; first study completed, facilitated a system-wide practice change, presented at a national conference, accepted for publication; two more studies underway; media coverage - 30 minute talk show about nursing research. These nurse-driven studies are sparking interest among staff, especially when the results change practice. Nurses are learning research is not to be feared.
