These two nursing interventions: liquid artificial tears and artificial tears gel were compared to determine which is more effective for eye dryness in this group of patients. The result showed that the gel was more superior than the liquid in preventing dry eyes. Some patients are more vulnerable to eye dryness than others. Nevertheless, the condition that the patients may be in might increase their vulnerability. It is the nurses responsibility to properly assess those patients in order to implement this finding into practice. As we learned from nursing school, the assessment is the first step in the nursing process. Therefore, it is important for nurses to acquire the skills necessary to perform good assessment of their patients to discover problems early on so treatment can be implemented. In this studied case, I could suggest that the gel be put as a standing order for all adult patients in the intensive care unit as preventative measure for eye dryness before it develops. “Nurses are in a unique position to foster the translation of research into practice” (Houser, 2019 p. 450). Because nurses are in the frontline of healthcare, nurse‐led research is more and more identified as a critical pathway to practical and effective ways of improving patient outcomes. A thorough research study is when its finding is disseminated (Curtis et al.,2017). Dissemination can be done through journals, presentation via poster or podium at local, regional or national conferences. The only way that researchers know if the interventions they test really benefit the patients is when the findings are put into practice. Therefore, translating research findings into practice is an important part of the research.Referencesde Araujo, D. D., Silva, D. V. A., Rodrigues, C. A. O., Silva, P. O., Macieira, T. G.
