Abstract

Background: Translating research evidence into clinical practice (TRIP) is an important initiative for health services so that care delivered is cost-effective, is efficient, and improves patient outcomes. Most TRIP studies have reported on disseminating and implementing clinical practice guidelines, protocols, or care pathways and have been undertaken in acute rather than community settings. � Objectives: To identify the factors that influence incontinence TRIP and to present key international studies on incontinence TRIP. � Methods: Existing literature on TRIP was analyzed to generate a plan for future research. � Results: Several methods to effect incontinence TRIP are described, including clinical practice guidelines and protocols, clinical pathways, partnerships between organizations, a model for incorporating UI research based on generic questions, and implementation strategies that incorporate change theory and consideration of barriers. � Conclusions: Future research is needed on incontinence TRIP in the following areas: barriers, the best theoretical approaches, the effectiveness of empowerment approaches, the value of mentors, effective strategies for nurses and unlicensed personnel, the impact of international collaboration, and regulations across settings. � Key Words: incontinence � translating research into practice
