Individual determinants of research utilization: a systematic review
Context. In order to design interventions that increase research use in nursing, it is
necessary to have an understanding of what influences research use.
Objective. To report findings on a systematic review of studies that examine individual
characteristics of nurses and how they influence the utilization of research.
Search strategy. Asurvey of published articles in English that examine the influence of
individual factors on the research utilization behaviour of nurses, without restriction
of the study design, from selected computerized databases and hand searches.
Inclusion criteria. Articles had to measure one or more individual determinants of
research utilization, measure the dependent variable (research utilization), and
evaluate the relationship between the dependent and independent variables. The
studies also had to indicate the direction of the relationship between the independent
and dependent variables, report a P-value and the statistic used, and indicate the
magnitude of the relationship.
Results. Six categories of potential individual determinants were identified: beliefs
and attitudes, involvement in research activities, information seeking, professional
characteristics, education and other socio-economic factors. Research design, sampling,
measurement, and statistical analysis were examined to evaluate methodological
quality. Methodological problems surfaced in all of the studies and, apart from attitude
to research, there was little to suggest that any potential individual determinant
influences research use.
