Abstract:

Do care staff feel they participate in too much research, and are electronic surveys a convenient way of collecting data? Care staff at Canada's largest public provider of facility-based continuing care were asked these questions in a questionnaire (i.e., electronic survey or paper survey) developed for this study. A total of 25 nursing managers and 32 other professional care staff indicated that they preferred electronic surveys and were satisfied with the extent of their research participation. They also indicated that workload was the main deterrent to their research participation. Use of electronic surveys could positively affect the researcher/care staff relationship that is so important to the quality of health-care research.

Le personnel des soins infirmiers a-t-il l'impression de participer à un nombre trop élevé de recherches? Les questionnaires électroniques sont-ils une méthode pratique de collecte de données? On a demandé à des membres du personnel du plus important établissement de soins prolongés au Canada de répondre à ces questions dans le cadre d'un sondage (mené en versions électronique et papier). Vingt-cinq directeurs des soins infirmiers et 32 autres professionnels du secteur ont indiqué qu'ils préféraient les questionnaires électroniques. Ils ont rapporté être satisfaits de leur apport aux travaux de recherche et précisé que le principal facteur qui limitait leur participation était la charge de travail. Le recours aux questionnaires électroniques pourrait donc avoir un effet positif sur la relation entre chercheurs et personnel infirmier, condition essentielle de la qualité de la recherche menée en soins infirmiers.
