Abstract:
Improving patient outcomes requires a planned approach to implementing research and evidence-based practice to assure we deliver the best care to patients. This presentation describes the journey and outcomes of a strategic plan to establish structures and processes to facilitate nurses transformation to bedside scientists. This endeavor included developing structures to support nursing research; implementing processes for education and evaluating outcomes that reflect engagement as bedside scientists. Transformational leadership is evaluated on the basis of outcomes. Over the past year, our nurses have demonstrated exceptional engagement in research and evidence-based practice. We currently have 30 unit based projects; over 25 nurses have completed national poster and podium presentations that highlight completed projects and we have submitted ten grant applications to support clinical research projects. To achieve this level of engagement, leadership developed an integrated strategy and specific expectations for units and staff. Nursing performance appraisals were modified to include requirements for research participation. Bedside nurses were encouraged to use educational time to attend research classes. Through unit shared governance, nurses have been charged to develop projects that address clinical issues. Infrastructure to support these activities includes an interdisciplinary research council; a research mentor program; monthly research classes; nursing grand rounds that feature clinical research endeavors; enhanced online library services and financial support for presenting at national conferences. As nurses increase their depth and breadth of research expertise, they enhance their abilities to address clinical issues. Enthusiastic on their journeys to become bedside scientists they transform care to achieve excellence.
