Final Proposal Submission: November 15, 2014
To fund qualified nephrology nurses’ work to translate research into practice in support of developing evidence-based nephrology nursing practice and demonstrating the value of nephrology nursing in improving patient outcomes.
PROJECT TYPES ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING*
• Primary Research: funding on a smaller scale as compared to the research grant award. Pilot studies, and partial funding for research projects, thesis, or dissertations.
• Evidence Summary: synthesis of the body of research on a topic of relevance to practice into a single, meaningful statement of the state of the science. Examples include systematic review, meta analysis, review of the literature.
• Research Translation: translation of evidence into practice recommendations. Examples include: clinical practice guidelines that may include clinical pathways, protocols, and algorithms.
• Integration: adoption of a practice change based on evidence. This involves changing both individual and organizational practices through formal and informal channels. Examples include implementation of a clinical pathway based on evidence found in the literature, use of an evidence-based algorithm found in the literature.
• Evaluation: evaluation of an EBP project already implemented in the clinical setting.
• Other projects. Examples include: staff development programs on topics such as evidence based practice, learning to evaluate the research literature, how to effectively conduct a literature search, development of patient teaching materials that are evidence-based, implementation of a journal club to introduce EBP. Consult with the Research Committee to determine appropriateness of other project ideas.
