Author information

St. Tammany Regional Heart Center, Covington, Louisiana, USA.


Performance improvement offers tremendous opportunities for research utilization in the clinical setting. The linkage model of research utilization is characterized by a user system that accesses a resource system, adapting research findings to clinical practice. A performance improvement consultant can be the link between these systems. Research application can be instrumental in improving care delivery as demonstrated in a project concentrating on the management of individuals experiencing a cerebrovascular accident.
