Planning/Assessment: Evidence-Based Management Among Idaho Healthcare Administrators
The goal of the project is to develop a research project that helps to identify hospital administrator beliefs and attitudes toward the use of evidence-based management (EBMgt) and to investigate barriers that hinder hospital administrators from adopting EBMgt. The PNR Network member will develop based on a literature review, modify based on a pilot study, and administer an online survey instrument to Idaho hospital administrators. The collected data will have descriptive and inferential analysis performed using Predictive Analytical Software 20.0, and a final report shared with PNR and at the Idaho Hospital Association annual conference. Expected outcomes of the project will be the survey instrument and final report, potentially identifying the need to offer training on EBMgt for Idaho healthcare administrators.
