Optimising the Collaborative Practice of Nurses in Primary Care Settings Using a Knowledge Translation Approach
Oelke, Nelly; Wilhelm, Amanda; Jackson, Karen
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v12 n4 p605-615 Nov 2016
The role of nurses in primary care is poorly understood and many are not working to their full scope of practice. Building on previous research, this knowledge translation (KT) project's aim was to facilitate nurses' capacity to optimise their practice in these settings. A Summit engaging Alberta stakeholders in a deliberative discussion was the primary KT method used. Participants developed ten recommendations for the effective utilisation of nurses in primary care. Several challenges were encountered: ensuring broad stakeholder representation; focusing on solutions versus issues; and using common language across stakeholder groups. Lessons learned through this KT approach are also identified.
