Abstract

In this department, Dr Newhouse highlights hot topics in nursing outcomes, research, and evidence-based practice relevant to the nurse administrator. The goal is to discuss practical implications for nurse leaders in diverse healthcare settings. Content includes evidence-based projects and decision making, identifying measurement tools for quality improvement and safety projects, using outcome measures to evaluate quality, practice implications of administrative research, and exemplars of projects that demonstrate innovative approaches to organizational problems. In this article, the authors discuss the need for knowledge translation to leverage improvements in healthcare quality and describe 3 frameworks that can be used to plan and implement translation of evidence to practice.
