A HealthLINE member sent this citation and review of an interesting article on methods to bring evidence to the bedside nurse.
Larkin ME, Cierpial CL, Vanderboom T et al. Research ambassadors: Bringing findings to the bedside. Nurs Manage. 2009; 40 (10):20-23. (I would link to the PubMed citation, but they failed to index the entire October issue- amazing!)
The article by Larkin et al discusses the barriers and practical initiatives to bring nursing research findings directly to the bedside. As librarians, we can proactively support these initiatives through participation on our hospital’s Nursing Research Committee, training, literature search and document delivery activities.
