Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Background/Significance: Research is integral to nursing since best practice can outdate quickly. Nurses must constantly re-evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of patient care interventions and need current resources such as pathways, quality improvement tools, and policies grounded in research. Through the Did You Know (DYK) poster series, nurses and other health professionals share their expertise and educate colleagues about current best practice. In the poster development process authors search the literature for data and summarize key points in a poster format displayed throughout the hospital. Implementation: The DYK group is a subcommittee of the larger Nursing Research Committee consisting of nurses and a librarian, who meet monthly. They "mine" for members of the healthcare team within the hospital to share their expertise and communicate the latest research findings on topics of general interest. The group and authors(s) review poster guidelines and collaborate until the final draft is approved for printing. Color posters are distributed to 70 nursing care areas within the organization. Smaller handouts are available to take away and read later. The posters are changed periodically through the year. Performance Improvement Outcome: DYK posters are designed to inform nurses of the latest research findings. They are likely to be read because they are short, current, eye catching and conveniently placed. They are readily accessible methods of promoting research utilization, facilitating the translation of research into nursing interventions. Two recent topics are Sepsis and Early Goal Directed Therapy in the Emergency Department and Long QT Syndrome. Implications for Nursing Practice, Research, Policy and Education: Authors are energized by the ability to influence practice in their field of specialty, and are encouraged to pursue publication of the poster content. When nurses have access to the latest research findings, they become empowered to...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.\
