You have all completed considerable research into putting your projects together. Many of you may have found that you really enjoyed the research process…I hope so! Research is really very basic to our profession, and it is the only way that we are going to be able to keep up with the fast-changing world of health care. However, according to Gerrish and Lacey (2013), “Although research may be an interesting and intellectually satisfying activity in its own right, there is little point to carrying out research unless it is disseminated to those who can make use of the new knowledge generated” (p. 475). The simple point here is that we can do the research and learn many new things, but unless we share it and get the knowledge put into practice in the care of patients, it really doesn’t do any real good. My question to you, therefore, is what is the best way to do this? What do you see as the barriers to getting evidence-based-practice research results to the point of patient care? After all, this should be our goal, whether we are in administration or education: patient care at the highest possible level.
