Transcript of Evaluation of Translation

Begin when the plan is developing
Evaluate the overall project goals and aims
Continuously evaluate why or why not the goals are being met
Address each goal individually
Step 3
Evaluate the structure & process of the project
Examine the validity and fidelity to the intervention
It is important to identify if structure and/or process variables have an impact on outcomes
variables such as population, setting, staff, physical componenets (equipment, building structure), unit or organizational census and more all can have an impact on the outcome therefore creating bias and error
It is important to understand the impact these extraneous variables had on the outcomes for the future sustainability of the change
Step 2
Evaluate the outcomes
Include both patient, provider and organizational outcomes
These can include clinical indicators or patient behaviors
These can be qualitative or quantitative in nature
Examples of outcomes are: biologic measures (BP); behavioral (adherance); humanistic (quality of life) and economic outcomes
Step 1
4 Main Purposes of Evaluation
1. Program monitoring
2. Program improvement
3. Development of effective program models
4. Program accountability
The 2nd Element of the Framework
Includes assessing the quality of evaluation activities
Uses a set of 30 standards, divided into 4 main categories

6 Steps
1. Engage the stakeholders
2. Describe the programs
3. Focus the evaluation design
4. Gather credible evidence
5. Justify the conclusions
6. Ensure use and share lessons learned
Framework of evaluation CDC Recommendations
Angela B. Newman, PhD, RN
The University of North Carolina
at Greensboro
School of Nursing
Data collection and statistaical analysis of quantitative evaluation data
Time series data collection:
Best to measure the impact of the intervention on the outcome at various points in the project
Best when data is collected at one organization or a includes a very small sample relative to the results.
Most common data collection:
collect data as before and after an intervention
collected from the same subject
this is not always feasible
Most common statistical analysis:
test, used to measure differences between 2 groups
must be interval or ratio level data
must determine if the data is paired or independant
used when there is before & after data collected
3 Key Aspects of Process Evaluation
1. describe the QI intervention
2. explore the actual exposure to the intervention
3. describe the key features of the intervention
Step 4
Relate back to assesment and identification of barriers, strengths and limitations of the project
Identify any existing barriers, weaknesses that were not identified at the beginning of the project
Was there any deviation from the original plan
Include evidence of translation sustainability and adoption within the organization and smaller units

Evaluation of Translation Program
Step 5
Discussion & Planning
Assess the entire project & feedback loop
Address sustainability, feasability and future needs
Re-address barriers, strengths & weaknesses
Make plans for resources & time
Plan for ongoing evaluation & potential change
Evaluation & Dissemination of Translation
Find an appropriate journal
Tailor the manuscript to the journal style and audience
Review previous issues of the journal
Review directions for authors
Can send a query for interest (sometimes)
Submit manuscript (online/email)
Peer review process generally takes 4-12 weeks
Make requested revisions & resubmit OR find another journal!! Keep trying!!
Submitting an Article

Target audience, objectives,
Time allowed, formal or informal setting
Takes practice, practice, practice
Colleagues can give feedback
Usually a time keeper
No more than 1 slide per 1-2 minutes (max)
Use a traditional research outline for formal presentations

Podium Presentation

Abstracts have many purposes
Read by reviewers for acceptance
Summarize/begin a manuscript
Summary in searchable databases
Most have specific requirements
Spacing, margins, method of submission
Ex: Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results, Conclusions, Application of the Findings
Be clear, concise and provide a compelling “argument”

Preparing an Abstract

Conferences of professional associations
Research conferences
Hospital research days

Podium presentations
Research poster presentations
Publication of abstracts
Publication in peer reviewed journals

Communicating Research

Research requires tremendous effort on the part of the researcher(s)
Results should be broadly communicated to generate the most value for the efforts.
We have a duty & an obligation to report findings (positive or negative)

Don’t keep secrets locked in a file cabinet!

The Need for Communication

A visual display that presents a research report
Translates ideas & images to graphic form
Serves as a stand alone description of the work
Needs to be readable 4-6 feet away
Color, pictures, text size are important
May have author present when viewed by others
Less intimidating for new presenters than podium
Specific requirements for size of poster, length of time for displaying, & when author is present
Results presented in visual form with limited text

Poster Presentation

Dissemination of Translation & EBP
Examples of Poster Presentations
National Lilly Conference, Austin TX, January 2015
Southern Nurses Research Society, Birmingham, AL
February, 2010
In other words... spread the word about your hard work, great outcomes and innovative ideas!
