Communication Strategies

It is crucial to begin by identifying significant elements where nurses’ collaboration is required. Informing research personnel about the patient clinical state, coordinating nurse care and symptom management to optimize study participants’ capacity to complete study activities, and supporting and encouraging patient participation are just a few instances. In order to sufficiently encourage staff to research, it is required to explain the importance of everyone’s involvement in this process (Chien, 2019). Since this is a new nurse, it is necessary to provide conditions that allow studying the information for the best result comprehensively (Leonard, 2021). It is also necessary to provide an understanding of how to combine the patient care process with the study of research.

Regularly planned meetings with the new nurses should be used to develop communication. It is indeed essential for cross-site communication of viewpoints, ideas, problems, and progress on research activities. Nurses can leverage the collective expertise of the group to prevent or resolve any obstructions to smooth study implementation at their various sites by offering a channel for participation in problem-solving (Chlan, 2020). As a supervisor, I am responsible for providing timely study-related information as well as solutions for addressing any identified study-flow impediments at appropriate sites. The sessions give a chance for participants to express their opinions and recommendations for tactics to examine in order to improve the study’s effectiveness. It also promotes collaborative relationships and aids in the preservation of study integrity.

Places to Complete Research

Integrating study techniques into patients’ daily care planning is a practical approach to doing research. It is worth emphasizing that this is particularly critical since patients must be examined. This research plan includes exact dates and times for scheduled study interventions and assessments, allowing direct care nurses to anticipate and plan care for their patients while also assisting with study completion (Chien, 2019). It also serves as a reminder for direct nurses to provide critical information regarding enrolled patients’ health status with clinical research coordinators. In addition, it is necessary to get access to various information recorded regarding a similar disease in other institutions (Chlan, 2020). It is also essential to study the electronic health records of the arriving patient. This is necessary in order to determine the history of diseases, which will help narrow down the search for the necessary information.

Sources of Online Information

Cochrane Library. In the first stage, new systematic reviews devoted to evaluating the effectiveness of medical interventions should be searched in the Cochrane Library database. The database of Systematic Reviews — CDSR included in this library contains complete variants of systematic reviews that are unique in their completeness. They are characterized by high methodological standards and constant updating of the material when new evidentiary information appears and in response to constructive criticism.

The “Evidence-Based Medicine” journals and the Best Evidence database. If there are no articles on the right topic in the databases of the Cochrane Library, then the next step should be to search for information sources that also contain high-quality reviews and comments on them. Such sources primarily include the journals “ACP Journal Club” and “Evidence-Based Medicine” combined into the Best Evidence database with an integrated search engine. Answers to questions arising in the provision of medical care can be found in the new periodical “Clinical Evidence“, which contains the conclusions of reviews and the results of other evidence-based publications with a high methodological level.

On the Health Services/Technology Assessment Text (HSTAT) website, nurses can find a high-quality selection of complete versions of reports on the effectiveness of medical interventions and medical technologies and clinical recommendations developed on their basis. All these materials are presented by medical news agencies in the USA. Bibliographic databases. Suppose databases with complete versions of reviews and detailed abstracts, such as the Cochrane Library or Best Evidence, are unavailable or do not contain the necessary information. In that case, nurses should turn to more straightforward bibliographic databases. Many references and short abstracts can be found in the extensive databases MEDLINE, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and EMBASE/Excerpta Medica.
