Resumé

Qualitatively, research has demonstrated the existence of bricolage among healthcare staff, i.e. solving problems on the spot by resources at hand, and its potential to lead to innovation. However, we know little about the spread of bricolage activity and its potential role for innovation in healthcare. The aim of this study was therefore to provide an instrument for measuring bricolage activity among nurses, to test the measure and learn about the spread of bricolage in nursing in Denmark. We used a mixed- method design including a translation–back translation, a pre-test and a pilot test. Primary data were collected during 2015 via interviews and a survey, including 248 nurses. The analysis revealed that the majority of nurses rated themselves and colleagues as having a high level of bricolage activity. This study’s preliminary validations (content and face validation), of the translated Bricolage Measure, confirmed the usability of the instrument to examine bricolage activity in nursing in Denmark.
