Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will describe how a system-wide Nursing Research Committee was established to provide a forum for sharing individual projects, encourage cross campus collaborative research projects, seek resources for research, and support the dissemination of research results. ABSTRACT: We donÆt have the conflict of Archie and Meathead, but we do have a family of nurses who are members of a system-wide Nursing Research Committee. Within the system, there are several hospitals and healthcare provider groups, two of which have achieved Magnet Recognition. Initiated in 2005, the System-Wide Nursing Research Committee was established to: provide a forum for sharing individual research projects, encourage cross campus collaborative research projects, seek resources for research and support the dissemination of research results. Committee members include: research nurses, nursing directors, an academic consultant, as well as librarians, educators, and doctoral students. The committee truly captures the spirit of the eighth Force of Magnetism: Consultation and Resources by providing a forum for sharing, collaborating and supporting nursing research activities. By creating a forum for networking, the Committee enhances nursing practice by tapping into a large body of knowledge, sharing labor and pooling resources. This group is influencing nurses by leading away from a time when ônurses were nursesö and ôresearchers were researchersö and moving them towards an environment of cooperation and work load sharing. An example of this accord is a recently completed system-wide research study on the utilization and satisfaction of the bedside nurse with a remote monitoring system (eICU«) in critical care units. The tasks of the project, such as searching the literature, securing funding, developing the protocol and study design, were divided among individuals and pairs. Committee members met regularly to combine the work and develop and implement the study. Staff nurses from several campuses participated by attending an educational session and completing satisfaction surveys. Utilization results were tracked from a central location. Currently, results are being analyzed. The committee will continue to collaborate on dissemination. By sharing the demands of a research study, committee members were able to benefit the entire system while still attending to individual campus responsibilities. Future plans for the Committee include adding additional nurses, continued work on cross campus research projects and other ways to support research such as holding a nursing research conference. The Committee also serves as a model for successful system-wide collaborations, as well as a best practice for other healthcare organizations.
