Abstract:
Peer review is an integral part of professional nursing practice that traditionally involves licensed personnel evaluating one another (Pederson, Crabtree & Ortiz-Tomei, 2004). Scholarly journals use a peer review process when determining whether a manuscript should be accepted for publication (Miracle, 2008). Internal peer review is the process professional nurses at our facility use to ensure abstracts, posters and podiums disseminated for external presentation represent their best scholarship. The intent of internal peer review is to help nurse authors achieve and maintain credibility by identifying errors that they may have overlooked, preserve scientific rigor, and reduce the potential for bias. The Evidence-Based Practice Council is the venue for the conduct of internal peer review. Professional nursing staff contacts the council chair to submit a project for review. Reviews are conducted in a timely manner and suggestions for the author are made. Peer reviewers are expected to be fair, unbiased and avoid harsh or demeaning comments. The intent of the internal peer review process is to be constructive and support professional development. Abstracts are reviewed for clarity, guideline adherence and scholarship. Posters are critiqued for effective visual elements (Keely, 2004). Podium presentations are evaluated for clearness and style. 86% (6 of 7) of internally peer reviewed abstracts have been accepted by a national conference resulting in three posters and three podiums. Nurse authors report greater confidence in presentation skills following review. Interdisciplinary collaboration and mentoring relationships between council members and staff nurses have been established.
