Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: As a Magnet Hospital, we strive to enhance our research agenda, adding studies that generate new knowledge. We are committed to using rigorous research standards to assure the scientific merit of our findings and are committed to engaging bedside nurses in the process. While nursing texts present a straightforward approach to designing and implementing a research project, we have found that the best-laid research plans still require flexibility, adaptation and modification in the clinical environment. In this presentation, we will discuss our experiences in planning, funding and implementing successful (and abandoned) research projects. We will describe our journey to find a balance between clinical practice and research. Our challenges and opportunities have included time, knowledge, feasibility, data collection, sample size, subject consent, funding and product availability -- to name a few. Using actual studies conducted at our hospital, we will illustrate our approaches to these complex issues. Studies include: A comparison of sternotomy dressings; Nurses' knowledge and attitudes toward breastfeeding-Impact on mothers perceptions of support; Evaluation of education on knowledge and self-confidence in clinical judgments in nurses in a trauma resuscitation setting; Accuracy and precision of temperature measurement, and The impact of multidisciplinary education and daily reinforcement on VAP bundle and wean screen compliance in surgical ICU settings. Outcomes of our learning processes have helped us enhance both structures and processes that facilitate nursing research and provide answers to real-life clinical questions.
