Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will review the use of quality improvement and research, providing comparisons of these two essential aspects of nursing practice. A method of moving quality improvement to research will be discussed and strategies for integrating research into clinical nursing practice will be highlighted. ABSTRACT: Overview: The use of quality improvement and research is being advocated to ensure best practices for patients and promote positive outcomes. This is especially important for nursing care which directly impacts patient outcomes. While quality improvement initiatives have an established role in the hospital setting, integrating research in clinical practice can be challenging. In addition, uncertainty exists as to what initiatives are considered quality improvement and what initiatives fall under the category of research. The Magnet Recognition Program identifies the importance of quality improvement and research in promoting high quality care for patients and for promoting the use of research to enhance nursing practice. Purpose: This session will review the use of quality improvement and research, providing comparisons of these two essential aspects of nursing practice. Clinical examples from a Magnet Designated university affiliated medical center and from a Magnet Designated community medical center will be used to highlight distinctions. The method of moving quality improvement to research will be discussed, including techniques to navigate the institutional review board approval process. Strategies for integrating research into clinical nursing practice will also be highlighted. Implications for Practice: Focusing on quality improvement and the use of clinical research are paramount to ensuring effective patient care and fostering nursing care that is based on evidence. Clarifying and differentiating between quality improvement and research is important as nurses strive to promote best practice, integrate the Magnet Forces into practice, and enhance and build new programs of research and evidence based practice.
