about this item
This is the first resource to provide a roadmap to develop a nursing research program in a complex hospital environment. Written by experienced researchers who have successfully implemented these techniques in the Cleveland Clinic, the handbook guides nurses in building and sustaining a research program—a fundamental requirement for transforming care at the bedside, ensuring highest quality, evidence-based practices, improving administrative efficiencies and obtaining American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet® recognition. The book demonstrates step-by-step how leaders and staff can integrate nursing research into the workflow of multiple and complex health care environments. Resources provide a framework for developing and sustaining a program that creates new knowledge and enhances the scientific foundation of nursing evidence. With a focus on practical applications, the book addresses the structures, systems, processes, and resources (including templates, figures and tables) required for creating and maintaining a research program, along with methods for its evaluation.
