Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Evidence-based nursing is often limited by barriers. Learn how one hospital implemented three foundational elements to enhance nursing research activities without increasing time allotted for practicing nurses to conduct research. Foundational elements will be discussed and overall results will be related to nursing research activities. ABSTRACT Background: An important goal in demonstrating excellence in nursing practice is to assure that practices are evidenced-based. When nurse practice issues develop during routine care activities at the bedside, nurses might ignore the urge to explore answers to questions due to time and other barriers to initiating and conducting nursing research. Purpose: We hypothesized that we would promote evidence-based nursing practices through nursing research by developing a foundation of support for practicing nurses. We also hypothesized that a strong foundation of support was sufficient to expand research activities without offering nurses additional time to carry out research-related activities beyond the systems already in place. Methods: A foundation for nursing research was developed and implemented in a 1000+ bed tertiary care healthcare center that supports over 3500 hospital and ambulatory nurses. Foundational elements center on 3 themes: (a) collaborative leadership, (b) mentorship and coaching resources by PhD RNs with a research background, and (c) system and process improvements that supported nursing research needs. Each foundational element will be discussed in detail during the session. Examples will be provided so participants can see the practical application of each foundational element. Results: Prior to implementing an expanded foundation to support nursing research for practicing nurses, there were 24 ongoing research projects led by nurses. After the first full year of implementation, there was a 375% increase in ongoing nursing research projects and a 600% increase in completed projects. Early ongoing research results have been sustained over time and dissemination is increasing; at the end of the third year, there was a 300% increase in peer-reviewed journal publications. Conclusions: A firm foundation of support in nursing research expanded evidence-based nursing practices as demonstrated by an increase in the conduct and dissemination of nursing research. Results occurred without any changes in allotment of time for nursing research activities. Gains in the first year were maintained and enhanced over time. REFERENCES: Albert NM, Siedlecki SL.
