Abstract:
Paper Presentation: How do you assess staff readiness for research? What support mechanisms are needed to promote and "demystify" research? This presentation begins by describing the assessment of cultural readiness for nursing research. Many strengths were identified: nursing school affiliations, nurses prepared with a master's degree, and administrative support for research. A major opportunity for improvement was the lack of knowledge on how to conduct nursing research. The decision was made to partner with many internal and external stakeholders to develop a center for nursing research. The overall goal was to make research a part of daily nursing practice and ensure easy accessibility to research consultation. This presentation describes the structure used to develop a center for nursing research and provides examples of the nursing research projects completed over the past three years. Research study topics include administration (nurse to patient ratio, evaluation of shared leadership model, nurse leader communication); environmental (Pediatric Emergency Department environment, impact of environment on pain perception during bone marrow aspiration, nurses' preferences for the lounge area); education (knowledge of heart failure, preoperative education); and practice (fall risk assessment, animal assisted therapy, discharge planning for total joint replacement patients, screening for obstructive sleep apnea). The session discusses the numbers and types of staff conducting research, the types of research methodologies, and how research results have been used to change practice. In addition, the reinforcement and recognition systems in place to encourage research and the vision for the future of nursing research at the institution will be presented.
