Abstract

An integral part of NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) is a benchmarking service that provides member sites with the ability to evaluate staff perceptions of the care environment compared with other NICHE sites. The NICHE Database includes more than 100,000 surveys (Geriatric Institutional Assessment Profile). This study aimed to explain how secondary analyses of this aggregate database can inform effective geriatric programming in hospitals. We found that nurse age and experience influence nurse perceptions of organizational alignment to NICHE guiding principles and that those perceptions improve following NICHE implementation. The NICHE Database addresses knowledge generation in key areas of geriatric nursing practice and assists hospitals' systemic capacity to effectively embed NICHE Guiding Principles: evidence-based geriatric knowledge, patient-family centered care, healthy and productive practice environment, and multidimensional metrics of quality. It contributes to the growing field of implementation science that seeks to promote the uptake of research findings into clinical practice.
