Impact of the implementation of best practice guidelines on nurse's evidence-based practice and on nurses' work environment: Research protocol.

J Adv Nurs 2021 Jan 15;77(1):448-460. Epub 2020 Oct 15.

Faculty of Nursing and Physiotherapy, Balearic Islands University, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Aim: To determine the impact of the Best Practice Spotlight Organization® initiative on nurses' perception of their work environment and their attitudes to evidence-based practice.

Design: Quasi-experimental, multicentre study. The intervention is the participation in Best Prectice Spotilight Organizations to implement Best Practice Guidelines.

Methods: The study will include seven centres in the interventional group and 10 in the non-equivalent control group, all of them belonging to the Spanish national health system. The Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index, and the Health Sciences Evidence-Based Practice Questionnaire will be administered to a sample of 1,572 nurses at the beginning of the programme and at 1 year. This 3-year study started in April 2018 and will continue until December 2021. Statistical analyses will be carried out using the SPSS 25.0. This project was approved by the Drug Research Ethics Committee of the Parc de Salut Mar and registered in Clinical Trials.

Discussion: The study findings will show the current state of nurses' perception of their work environment and attitudes to evidence-based practice, and possible changes in these parameters due to the programme.

Impact: The findings could provide a strong argument for health policymakers to scale up the Best Practice Spotlight Organization® initiative in the Spanish national health system.

Knowledge expectations of orthopaedic patients.

Int J Nurs Pract 2018 Jun 24;24(3):e12639. Epub 2018 Mar 24.

Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Aim: To describe and compare knowledge expectations and received knowledge in elective orthopaedic surgery patients.

Background: Population aging, increasing incidence of osteoarthritis, the growing number of surgical procedures, and reduced clinical stays underline the need for a new approach to patient education.

Design: This study has a descriptive, comparative design.

Methods: Data were collected from 263 patients who had total hip and knee replacement elective surgery during 3 years (2009-2012) in 5 public hospitals in Spain. The Knowledge Expectation of Hospital Patients and the Received Knowledge of Hospital Patients Scales were used to collect data. The questionnaires were filled before hospital admission, at discharge and at follow-up 6 to 7 months later.

Results: Surgical patients received less knowledge than they expected. Patients' expectations were only met in the functional dimension. At follow-up, patients reported that they perceived having acquired more knowledge during their hospital stay than they reported at the time of discharge. Knowledge expectations and knowledge received were related to employment status, gender, and previous contact experience with the hospital.

Conclusion: Knowledge expectations were not met, and results showed the need to improve education for orthopaedic patients throughout the perioperative process, not only during hospitalization.
