Predictors of nurses' perceptions of barriers to research utilization.
J Nurs Manag. 2008 Apr; 16(3):305-14.JN

Abstract

AIM

To identify predictors of nurses' self-reported barriers to using research findings in clinical practice.

BACKGROUND

Several studies have shown that nurses perceive barriers to research utilization but to our knowledge predictors of nurses perceptions of barriers to research utilization have not been identified before.

METHODS

Three questionnaires were answered by 833 nurses: the Barriers Scale, the Quality Work Competence questionnaire and a questionnaire including questions on professional issues.

RESULTS

Dissatisfaction with support from immediate superiors for participating in research and/or development projects, having no academic degree and unclear and unrealistic workplace goals were identified as factors increasing the risk of perceiving barriers to the use of research findings in clinical practice.

CONCLUSIONS

The results imply that head nurses, nursing managers and other health care leaders should create strategies for supporting nurses' professional development and possibilities to implement research findings in clinical practice.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING MANAGEMENT

To support research utilization and evidence-based care health care leaders, head nurses and nurse managers should create clear and realistic goals for the work place including demands on evidence-based care. It is also important for head nurses and nurse managers to create strategies for supporting nurses' professional development and possibilities to implement research findings in clinical practice.
