Abstract

The utilization of research findings in the practice of critical care nursing is essential to obtain optimal patient outcomes. However, the speed and extent to which new research-based findings are applied to clinical practice falls short of expectations. The authors identify obstacles to the timely utilization of research. Strategies to overcome the obstacles to research-based clinical practice are presented.
