Several changes in nursing education and nursing research were encouraged to develop a knowledge base for nursing practice. In education, nursing schools increasingly began to include courses on research methods In the research arena field , there was a shift in focus toward clinical nursing problems.

Continue… These changes, coupled with the completion of several large research utilization projects, played a role in sensitizing the nursing community to the desirability of using research as a basis for practice Research utilization, as the nursing community has come to recognize, is a complex and nonlinear 4 The Research Utilization Continuum: The Research Utilization Continuum 1.

Emergence of research findings on a topic: The start-point of research utilization is the emergence of new knowledge and new ideas. Research is conducted and, over time, knowledge on a topic accumulates. In turn, knowledge works its way into use—to varying degrees and at differing rates.

It is frequently the result of a slow evolutionary process that does not reflect a conscious decision to use an innovative procedure but rather reflects what Weiss termed knowledge creep and decision accretion. Decision accretion accumulation refers to the manner in which momentum for a decision builds over time based on accumulated information gained through readings, informal discussions, meetings etc.

Efforts to use findings in practice RU: The Research Utilization Process Several theorists have developed models of how knowledge gets disseminated and used. The key elements in this process, all of which influence the rate and extent of innovation adoption, include the following: Continue The innovation is the new idea, practice, or procedure that, if adopted, will result in changes; the nature of the innovation strongly affects decisions about adoption.

Communication channels are the media through which information about the innovation is transmitted, and can include both mass media e. Communication is most effective when there are shared beliefs, values and expectations on the part of the sender and receiver of information. Continue Time is a component of the theory in that the process of knowledge diffusion occurs over time; there are varying amounts of time that elapse between the creation of the knowledge and its dissemination, and between knowledge awareness and the decision to use or reject the innovation.

The social system is the set of interrelated units that solve problems and seek to accomplish a common goal; diffusion occurs within social systems that vary in their norms and receptivity to innovations. Steps of the Research Utilization process Rogers characterized the innovation—adoption process as having five stages: During the knowledge stage, individuals or groups become aware of the innovation, During the persuasion stage, they form a positive attitude toward it.

In the decision stage, a choice is made about whether to adopt or reject the innovation. The innovation is actually put into use during the implementation stage.

Finally, the effectiveness of the innovation is evaluated during the confirmation stage, and decisions get made about continuation or discontinuation of the innovation. Steps of the Research Utilization process Research utilization is a multiple step process that involves; Determining the research knowledge ready for use in practice Persuading convincing nurses to use this knowledge Making a decision to use the knowledge in practice Implementing the knowledge to change practice Determining the outcomes from making the research based change in practice.

Strategies to promote the research utilization of Nursing Strategies for researchers Researchers should implement to foster better adoption of their research Results; Do high quality research Adequate scientific basis for introducing innovations or for making changes Replicate Researchers must make a real commitment to replicating studies and publishing the results of those efforts Collaborate with practitioners Researcher should seek opportunities to exchange ideas for research problems with nurse clinicians, involve them in actual conduct of research.

Strategies for researchers Disseminate Aggressively To report results in specialty journals Disseminate study findings at conference, workshops attended by nurse practitioners Communicate clearly Researchers present the results of research project in a way that is readily comprehensible to all non-researchers Suggest clinical implications Researcher should suggest how the results of their research can be utilized by practicing Nurses 15 2.

Strategies for administrators Administrator should engage in following Strategies; Foster promote a climate of intellectual curiosity interest Offer emotional and moral support Offer financial and or resource support for utilization Reward efforts for utilization 17 Barriers to Utilizing Nursing research: Barriers to Utilizing Nursing research Barriers to the research utilizing in nursing can be largely grouped into four categories relating to the characteristics of the source of barrier; Research Related Barriers: Scales The scale, a form of self-report, is a more precise means of measuring phenomena than the questionnaire Most scales measures psychosocial variables Scaling techniques can be used to obtain self-reports on physiological variables such as Pain, Nausea or Functional capacity.

The various items on most scales are summed to obtain a single score which referred as summated scales 20 Types of Scales: Types of Scales Rating scales:

Research utilization is the process of synthesizing, disseminating, and using research-generated knowledge to make an impact on or change in the existing nursing practice. The research utilization process was developed years ago to address the problems of using research findings in practice.

Privacy FAQs

Nurses’ research utilization (RU) as part of evidence-based practice is strongly emphasized in today’s nursing education and clinical practice. The primary aim of RU is to provide high-quality nursing care to patients.

The Utilization of Nursing Research: The Utilization of Nursing Research During s & early s, research utilization became an important buzz (ring) word. Several changes in nursing education and nursing research were encouraged to develop a knowledge base for nursing practice. Jul 13,  · Understanding factors supporting the uptake of evidence can inform the design of strategies to narrow these EBP gaps. Although research utilization (RU) and the factors associated with EBP have been reported in several health disciplines, to date this area has not been reviewed comprehensively in the chiropractic profession.
