Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This presentation describes a professional nursing staff model for clinical research. The program director and clinician researchers will describe the program, outcomes and how the program has continued to evolve and flourish. ABSTRACT:
Designing a clinical research program for practicing clinicians can be a challenge. And once implemented, sustaining enthusiasm and productivity may be difficult. The goal of our Professional Nursing Staff Organization (PNSO) was to develop a formal, widespread and sustainable research program for registered nurses. To that end, four years ago we implemented a program designed to teach clinical research to selected clinicians "one-step-at-a-time". The focus of the program is mentorship. The program director mentors clinicians in the process and they in turn mentor others. This "pay-it-forward" approach has resulted in a culture of evidence-based nursing practice at our institution and many other positive outcomes. The program currently has 34 clinician researchers (called Research Mentors) and over 300 participating clinicians from inpatient and outpatient settings. The RMs have designed and carried out over 30 nursing studies, presented at greater than 60 local, regional and national conferences and have published (six publications to date with many more in process or in press). Most importantly, the RM projects have resulted in changes in practice and a number of the RMs are currently leading research groups independently. Not only is our program flourishing but we are sustaining the gains and assuring that our practice is evidence-based!
