Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Literacy for Evidence-Based Nursing Research Problem Statement: Little is known about the research skill, readiness, utilization, and barriers to conduct research that nurses face in light of the importance of evidence-based practice. Purpose Statement: This study examined nurses' opinions of readiness for, access to, utilization of and barriers to the application of evidence-based research in their clinical practice. Design: A descriptive, exploratory survey design Methods: A 58 question survey was distributed to 1442 registered nurses. 443 surveys were returned, a 30.7% response rate. Findings: 42% of the respondents stated they seldom needed research evidence to support their nursing role. When needing nursing research 49% search databases (CINAHL and Medline) with 73% of the respondents starting their search using Google. Nurses currently pursuing higher nursing degrees were more likely to use research in their clinical practice. When evaluating resource availability and utilization 74% of the respondents stated they had access to research data while at work. 66% stated they had access to the library and 13% of the respondents frequently used the librarian. However, 70% of the respondents stated they did not utilize the library and 11% did not know who the library served. When assessing knowledge of database citations 40% of the respondents did not know what information database citations provided. 59% of the nurses had not received instruction in the use of printed/paper-based indexes or electronic databases. The barriers to evidence-based practice as ranked by the respondents are as follows: 1st - lack of understanding of electronic databases, 2nd - difficulty accessing resource material, 3rd - difficulty understanding research articles, 4th û hospital's computer filtering system, and 5th - lack of research value in nursing practice. Conclusions: Many RNs lack formal training in information retrieval or research utilization, do not value nursing research...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
