Abstract:
Paper Presentation: The Magnet journey can lead a nursing organization into the strange and alien world of research. Staff nurses often view research as a mysterious and tedious odyssey into outer space that looses sight of the realities of daily practice. Magnet expectations to explore the research landscape can be mind numbing. Obstacles imposed by a foreign language, strange new skills, and time demands associated with research can impede progress. To overcome these barriers, Nursing Research Council members at our Magnet community hospital designed alternate educational routes to bring nursing research back down to earth for staff nurses. This presentation is an actual re-enactment of two real-world programs designed as a partnership between the nurses and health sciences librarian on our Nursing Research Council. A staff nurse and the health science librarian actually conduct portions of the programs. Our purpose was to instill staff nurses with a pioneering spirit of inquiry and to equip them with the basic research skills needed to venture into research terrain with enthusiasm, excitement, and confidence. Borrowing ideas from Melnyck & Fineout-Overholt (2004), the first program is PICO's Peak, a realistic look at daily practice and the research opportunities that abound when nurses begin to ask relevant clinical questions. Using the PICO format, the program teaches staff how to discover and frame questions that are amenable to research. One clinical question raised at a PICO's Peak session became the basis for the second program, our Research Roundtable Series that reflects the work done by Caramanica and colleagues (2004). The question was: "What is best practice for prevention of heel ulcers in adults?" Our nurse-librarian team "go live" to demonstrate how to conduct the literature search around key words. The series continues by developing skills in selecting and critiquing relevant research articles. They share a critique tool developed as a gentle guide into the foreign land of research. The series ends with an introduction to the IOWA Model (Titler, et al., 1994) as a road map for decision making. The program includes with thoughtful discussion around the next steps.
