Nurses Research Findings: Missed Opportunities Jane Campion RGN MHSc Primary Care HealthCare Minds Ltd 22 nd October 2012
Share knowledge Share skills Share experiences Change clinical practice Improve user outcomes Increase visibility of Nursing profession Increase credibility of Nursing profession Why is it important for Nurses to publish their Research?
“I never want to see it again” “To be honest I’m afraid someone will turn around and say that’s all rubbish” “I meant to, but never got around to it” “I didn’t find my supervisor very supportive when I was doing the research, and now I really don’t know how to go about it (publishing)….I don’t want to ask them to co-author” Colleagues’ Personal Experiences
Exhaustion Daunting task Lack of writing skills Self confidence Poor incentives Unfavourable feedback Lack of finance Ref: Heyman B, Cronin P (2005), Happell, B. (2005). Barriers to Publishing
Lack of Understanding of How to Write for Publication Writer’s Block Lack of Time Fear of Rejection Ref: Oermann MH, C. Hays JC. (2011). Carlson, Masters, & Pfadt, 2008, Shah, Shah, & Pietrobon, 2009, McGaghie & Webster, 2009 Barriers to Publishing
Practice Nurses (PN) provide much of the care for patients with chronic diseases Key findings of one unpublished Irish study showed: PN have vital role to play in chronic disease management in General Practice and Practices with a PN are more likely to have improvements in chronic disease management and practice targets at an advanced or optimum level. Ref: Taylor SJC 2005, Robinson C Chronic Disease Management in Primary Care
Self management with support enhances outcomes in Diabetes programmes Self-management education teaches problem-solving skills and results in enhanced self-efficacy as well as facilitating optimum QOL Practice Nurses are effective at providing self- management support Research shows a need for specific education to equip the nurses with these skills. Ref WHO (2005), Wagner EH (2001), Greaves CJ (2007), Page T(2005), Oakeshott P (2003) Diabetes Programmes
Publishing quality improvement projects Less rigour but valuable information Less frequently published Lack of time Lack of writing skills Poor recognition of their importance Lack of confidence Don’t fit author guidelines Ref: Moss F, Thompson R (1999), Smith R (2000), Cleary M, Walter G (2004) Publishing is Not Just for the Academic Researcher
There are five main reasons to write for publication Ref: Oermann MH, C. Hays JC. (2011) Why Bother?
1. Share Ideas and Expertise McGaghie and Webster (2009)
2. Disseminate Evidence and Research Findings Ref: Carlson, Masters, and Pfadt (2008)
Ref: McGaghie and Webster (2009) 3. Meet Promotion, Tenure, and Other Job Requirements
4. Expand Personal Knowledge and Skills
Ref: Winslow, Mullaly, and Blankenship (2008) 5. Gain Personal Satisfaction
Nursing Research Facilitators Writing groups - Rickard et al. (2009) Mentoring - Winslow, Mullaly, & Blankenship (2008) Incentivise publication through CPD credits Encourage central research database use Blogging & promoting research through social media Example:http://www.phd2published.com/tag/futu re-of-academic-publishing/http://www.phd2published.com/tag/futu re-of-academic-publishing/ Food for Thought

THE JOY OF WRITING— RECIPE FOR SUCCESSFUL PUBLICATION One cup knowledge (no substitutions allowed) One cup confidence Half cup diligence Two cups patience Half cup curiosity One quart creativity Four to six references to taste One to two co-authors (optional). Ref: (Jean Blankenship)Winslow, S. A., L. M. Mullaly, et al. (2008) Thoroughly mix knowledge with confidence and diligence until well- blended. Extra diligence may be required. Sprinkle batter liberally with patience and pour entire quart of creativity over mixture. Adding curiosity will result in richer, more satisfying flavour. Mix thoroughly until batter is smooth and no lumps remain. Gently fold dough into baking pan lined with references. Co-authors may be required for successful product. Bake in prepared oven for 30 to 60 days. Remove from oven, cut and paste until desired shape is obtained and taste is satisfactory to all involved. Multiple attempts may be required for desired results. Serve with Pride!
