Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Background: Our Professional Nursing Staff Organization (PNSO) recognized that a formal clinical research program was the key to developing, nurturing and sustaining an institution wide evidence-based clinical practice. To that end, we developed a unique program of clinical research that focused on the development of clinicians as "Research Mentors" (RM) with the guidance and mentorship of a seasoned clinical researcher (program director). Methods: The RMs were selected using a competitive application process and were taught elements of the research process "step-by-step" as they conducted a unit-based study. Two cohorts of RMs were selected, in 2005 and 2006 respectively (with yet another scheduled for March 2007) and mentored throughout the year by the director. Outcomes: To date the program has 26 RMs and over 300 bedside clinicians are involved in the program. A total of 28 studies have been designed with 10 completed projects and the rest in the data collection stages. All completed projects are implemented into practice as appropriate and will be described. Seven of the completed projects are developing papers for publications and the majority of the RMs have presented their work at local, regional and/or national conferences. Most importantly, the RMs are continuing to mentor others in clinical research, clearly demonstrating the importance of evidence-based practice and the role of the clinician in assuring that best practice exists. Conclusion: Clinicians throughout the institution continue to be enthusiastic about the program and recognize that research is for clinicians and can be done!
