Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This program describes methods used by an urban academic hospital Nursing Research Committee (NRC) for disseminating research results to facilitate practice through leadership development. ABSTRACT/Purpose: To describe methods used by a Nursing Research Committee (NRC) for delivering latest research findings to bedside nurses. The mission and goals of the NRC are achieved through collaboration, communication and the development of research and leadership competencies. Background: Dissemination of nursing research findings is integral to promoting evidence-based practice. To foster the spirit of inquiry in clinical practice the Nursing Research Committee (NRC) has developed multiple strategies to promote awareness of research activities and provide support for research-based practice while developing nurse leaders to sustain and build initiatives. Methods: By creating a subcommittee structure with embedded mentoring of new nurse leaders, four methods for research dissemination have evolved. Methods include: "Did You Know (DYK)?" Posters, "Journal Club (JC)," "Nursing Research Expo (NRE)" and a professional development series to foster the development of research skills. Bimonthly DYK Posters visually display integrative research reviews of clinical practice issues. The interactive JC presentations showcase original, published nursing research and the author's journey in the research process. Article citations and summary tool are posted on the NRC website. During Nurses Week, the NRE hosts a Nursing Research Day featuring a prominent nurse researcher as a guest lecturer with presentations by winners of internally funded grant awards. Nursing research posters are displayed through the month of May. An interactive nursing fair was added with "Meet the Author" opportunities and research displays. Nursing Research Guides printed for the NRE events include poster abstracts, contact lists, and information about conducting nursing research Results: Since 2001, 25 'DYK' posters have been exhibited in 70 locations throughout the hospital. Since 2004, the 'JC' has featured 18 nurse researchers. A total of 187 research posters (range 16-52/year) have been displayed over the last seven years. Committee members have published 3 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals. Conclusions and Implications: The NRC has disseminated research findings through podium, print and electronic media, and peer communication. By providing opportunities to enhance research competencies of nurses and make the latest research findings easily accessible, the NRC enhances practice, improves patient outcomes and provides support for nurses engaged in the research process.
