Abstract:
Paper Presentation: A Magnet organization should reflect a culture of inquiry where nurses endeavor to continually question their practice, seek the best, available evidence, and feel confident in their ability to generate change. To that end, nurses in Magnet organizations are expected to incorporate research findings in their practice. Furthermore, they should be able to articulate the distinctions between the need for performance improvement (PI) projects, development of original research studies, and translation of best evidence into practice. Disparities in staff experience, educational preparation and research background create challenges for Nursing Research leaders. At our Magnet organization, we have created a culture of inquiry by revamping our career advancement program and nursing research committee to become a forum for discovering each nurse's unique contribution to research based upon experience and career trajectory. Nursing Research Committee meetings are open forums to nurses of all educational backgrounds. Education and growth occur though journal clubs, team projects, and human participant protection education. Furthermore, we introduced Evidence Based Practice (EBP) skills through brainstorming sessions with our staff on their respective units in order to elicit meaningful questions generated from daily practice issues. Nurse researchers, educators and staff librarians have supported the initiatives for the staff teams. National EBP experts, supported through HRSA grant funds, have provided guidance and expertise throughout the process. EBP practice changes are implemented, shared within the organization, and presented at professional conferences. This session will describe an innovative process of involving staff in evidence-based practice processes within a Magnet system.
