Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Research-based practice is a quality of professional nursing that requires a commitment. The Magnet Recognition Program supports nursing research and evidence based practice. Studies have identified what it takes to integrate scientific evidence into nursing practice at the bedside and the barriers to research utilization among nurses. Literature suggests that barriers include nurse characteristics such as lack of time, lack of exposure and understanding of research and organizational characteristics such as lack of administrative support. A tertiary care Midwestern Medical Center desired to study the current environment for nursing research and to use the findings to develop a nursing research strategic plan. In an effort to understand the significance of attitude in the adoption of a new practice, Rogers (2000) Theory of Innovation Diffusion guided this process. Two surveys were administered; the Funk (2000) BARRIERS survey and ten attitude questions from the Olade (2003) survey. In this sample of 336 nurses, the three highest rated barriers included insufficient time to read and implement research and feeling a lack of authority to make changes. In spite of the barriers reported, these nurses reported feeling interested and curious about research, suggesting that a climate existed where nurses wanted to explore research activities. The results provided the foundation for a strategic plan that creates a culture of learning in which nurses develop the skills necessary for research activities. The presentation presents the process of linking evidence to a strategic plan and identifies tactics that were implemented in an effort to enhance nursing research. References: 1.
