Objective: to identify the main barriers perceived for the use of research in clinical practice by nurses.
Method: a descriptive cross-sectional study, conducted through the administration of the Questionnaire on Barriers for the Use of Nursing Research by Nursing professionals, which was prepared by the Consorci Corporació Parc Taulí of Sabadell (Barcelona) during May-September, 2017. There was non-probabilistic accidental sampling. This self-administered questionnaire was distributed online. Univariate and bivariate analyses were conducted. It was considered that there were statistically significant differences if p< 0.05.
Results: the study included 276 Nursing professionals; 244 (88.4%) were women. Their mean (SD) work experience was 18.7 years (10.4) and 11.32 years (8) of experience at the Hospital Unit where they worked at the time of the study. Of them, 46.7% had received undergraduate training in research, and 70.3% postgraduate. The participants considered that research is a necessary activity (88.8%) which contributes to the development of the profession (98.9%); although they reckon that it requires a major investment in time and effort (94.9%). The three barriers identified with the highest scores were: “research articles / reports are published with delay” with a mean (SD) 3.03 (0.89), “there is no collaboration by physicians in their implementation” with a mean (SD) 2.99 (0.90) and “there is not enough time at work to implement new ideas” with a mean (SD) 2.98 (1.03).
Conclusion: the main barriers identified in this study by Nursing professionals who have participated are: lack of time, lack of knowledge regarding research methodology, and the perceived lack of support by the institutions.
