Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Background/Rationale: Scholarly activities are an important component of best practice in nursing yet can be labor-intensive and time-consuming, often competing with a myriad of other demands for time and resources. Developing strategies to encourage and support nurse clinicians' scholarly activities has resulted in a steady increase in scholarship among nurses at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Program or Intervention: DFCI's Phyllis F. Cantor Center for Research in Nursing and Patient Care Services developed and implemented several strategies to foster and support the growing interest in scholarly activities among the RN clinical staff. These included: 1) holding regular working sessions to provide help and group support for abstract and manuscript preparation and for the development of poster and Power Point presentations, 2) providing a seminar series focusing on how to get published; and 3) the creation of a web-based system that allows nurses to submit the details of their scholarly activities to the Research Center for entry into a database that will provide ongoing tracking of all nursing scholarship. Evaluation: Since these strategies have been implemented, feedback from clinicians and nurse managers has been very positive, nurses' interest in scholarship has steadily increased and the number of DFCI RNs' conference presentations and manuscript publications has grown significantly. Interpretation/Discussion: Developing and implementing strategies to promote and support nurses' scholarly activities is an essential component of best practice that results in the wider dissemination of exemplars of best practice through presentations and publications; thus benefiting the entire nursing profession.
