Abstract:
Poster Presentation: PURPOSE: The nursing research journal club was established at St. Joseph Hospital to increase awareness and utilization of nursing research and evidence based practice. As the interest in the journal club and nursing research has grown, it has become apparent that access to the monthly journal club meetings is difficult for nurses who are scheduled to work on nights and weekends. Informatics is becoming a daily necessity for delivering quality healthcare. The Institute of Medicine (2003) recommends that healthcare professionals be competent in the ability to "communicate, manage knowledge, mitigate error and support decision making using information technology". Use of Web-Logs or "blogs" as Internet-based tools for the dissemination of news, thoughts, and ideas originated in the late 1990s. (Schroeder, 2005). Maag (2005) states that written communication is necessary "to disseminate information on evidence-based practice" and suggests that the use of blogs may "motivate expression of thoughts, ideas and interests in real time". Intervention: The development and implementation of a Nursing Research Blog was spearheaded by an interdisciplinary team of Nursing and Information Technology experts. The goal was to establish a medium for the exchange of information, with regards to nursing research that would accommodate all nurses at St. Joseph Hospital. Through the use of 24 hour accessible information technology, it is hoped that nurses unable to attend meetings during the day, can share in the exchange of ideas and gain a sense of involvement while learning new research skills.
