Results to Date
  • Symbolic RU enveloped by conceptual RU
  • Support for instrumental research utilization.
  • Questioning conceptual research utilization.
    • Are conceptual RU and critical thinking similar or even the same concepts?
future directions
Future Directions
  • The successful development of a valid and reliable tool to measure research utilization will…
    • enable relatively straightforward assessment of the success of interventions targeted at increasing research utilization.
    • enable more organizationally focused assessments.
