|Questions to ask||Mobilization of Vulnerable Elders (MOVE) case example||Your KT Project|
|What barriers to behaviour change did you identity?|
These can be identified through
knowledge syntheses, conversations
with stakeholders, interviews/focus
groups, surveys, and observations.
|Belief that mobilizing patients will lead to more falls.|
|Who is changing their behaviour?a||Unit 2A nurses|
|What does an intersectional approach tell us about these barriers?|
Think through how you can identify
barriers and their related context.
|The education system (e.g.,|
undergraduate nursing education)
and organizational context (e.g., falls prevention policies at the hospital) support the belief that mobilizing patients will lead to patients falling.
Middle-aged female nurses, who have historically held roles as caregivers to aging relatives, share stories of how mobilizing family members has led to falls.
|What facilitators to knowledge use|
did you identify?
|Nurses’ desire to improve patient|
outcomes. Nurses’ desire to be
in compliance with hospital’s falls
|What does an intersectional|
approach tell us about these
|Nurses’ motivation to provide quality care is driven by the intersection of their professional role, individual values, and|
societal norms. Nurses’ role as paid employees of the organization impacts their desire to comply with existing organizational
mandates (e.g., falls prevention initiatives).
