A big problem in health care today is the research-practice gap, often caused by the failure to disseminate new knowledge from research and translate this into practice. Only a small percentage of research findings get translated into practice, due to three reasons: research results may not be disseminated at all, the findings are not disseminated to the right audiences, or the results are disseminated but are then not translated into practice. These problems occur in medicine, nursing and other health disciplines many countries. Today there is a movement around the world to try to overcome these problems, and the terminology of this movement includes knowledge translation, evidence-based nursing, or evidence based practice. Through OJIN and NUAP Biennial Conference author has great opportunity to disseminate new knowledge about pressure ulcer prevention into nursing practice.
