Title:
Adoption of AACN Verification of Feeding Tube Placement Practice Alert by Critical Care Nurses
Authors:
Bourgault, Annette M.
Abstract:
The intent of clinical practice guidelines is to help bridge gaps between evidence and practice, yet there is no correlation between availability of guidelines and changes in practice. Little is known about how critical care nurses adopt guidelines, since few studies have sampled nurses exclusively. This descriptive, exploratory study examined factors influencing adoption of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) Verification of Feeding Tube Placement Practice Alert and four clinical practices recommended by this guideline.
