Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Research designed and conducted by academicians is often referred to as the gold standard for nursing research. Unfortunately many questions exist in practice that are unlikely to be addressed in a timely manner using the academic model of research. Our Professional Nursing Staff Organization (PNSO) sought to design a clinical nursing research program that would assure the widespread and robust participation of bedside clinicians. The program philosophy recognizes that a key element of practice innovation, and the attainment of good clinical outcomes, is that questions that emerge from the bedside are addressed. This may mean that existing best-evidence is applied or that when no evidence exists, a study is designed to answer the question. Our clinical research model trains clinician researchers (called Research Mentors or RMs) to lead unit-based team research projects. The RMs are mentored in the process by the director of the program and they in turn are mentors to their team. This program is extremely popular and has resulted in over 36 studies, 10 publications (more in progress) and numerous local, regional and national presentations. All have resulted in practice changes throughout the institution. Involvement of clinicians is extensive (> 300 clinicians from clinics to critical care units). Additional outcomes also include professional development of the involved clinicians and a sense of pride that they are developing nursing knowledge and assuring their patients receive evidence based care. As they have said many times: "Who Says Research isn't for Staff Nurses? If they could see us now!"
