1. Pearsall, Emily. An Exploration of the Role of Influentials in Increasing the Uptake of Evidence-Based Practice in Nursing.

Degree: 2014, University of Toronto

Objective: The purpose of this study was to explore the role of persons who influence the uptake of evidence-based practice in nursing. Methods: This was a two-phase study. First, a scoping review of the literature was undertaken on influential persons (influentials) in nursing. Second, semi-structured interviews with front-line nurses were conducted using grounded theory. Results: Eleven studies were included in the scoping review and 18 nurses from hospitals in Ontario were interviewed. The results from the initial conceptual framework, scoping review and interviews were triangulated to form a theoretical model. This study found that influentials are credible individuals who use social, educational and leadership characteristics and strategies to change behaviors, attitudes and increase job satisfaction. Other factors of importance are supportive organizational leadership and awareness of barriers. Conclusions: Credible influentials appear to be a promising strategy to influence the uptake of evidence-based practice in nursing.

2. Al-Sukhni, Eisar. Diagnostic Accuracy of MRI for Assessment of T-category, Lymph Node Metastases, and Circumferential Resection Margin Involvement in Patients with Rectal Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

Degree: 2012, University of Toronto

BACKGROUND: MRI is increasingly being used for rectal cancer staging. The purpose of this study was to summarize published evidence to determine the accuracy of MRI for T-category, lymph node (LN) metastases, and circumferential resection margin (CRM) involvement in rectal cancer. METHODS: Sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic odds ratios (DOR) were estimated using hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristics modeling and bivariate random effects modeling. RESULTS: MRI was more specific for CRM (94%, 95%CI 88-97) than for T-category (75%, 95%CI 68-80) and LN’s (71%, 95%CI 59-81) but was more sensitive for T-category (87%, 95%CI 81-92) than for CRM (77%, 95%CI 57-90) and LN’s (77%, 95%CI 69-84). DOR was higher for CRM (56.1, 95%CI 15.3-205.8) than for LN’s (8.3, 95%CI 4.6-14.7) and T-category (20.4, 95%CI 11.1-37.3). CONCLUSIONS: MRI has good accuracy for both CRM and T-category and should be considered for preoperative rectal cancer staging. In contrast, LN assessment is poor on MRI.
