At the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), nurses have boldly dared to transform their nursing program into a place where patient care, science, research, and evidence combine for improved practice, responsible economics, enhanced mentoring, and a fertile place to allow extraordinary nurses to develop.

Fostering a Research-Intensive Organization addresses how a strong nursing research agenda can impact patient care and influence the redesign of services needed to effectively respond to a changing healthcare environment. This book provides a comprehensive review to support the practice environment as an important place to advance nursing science through research by:

  • Providing examples of the MGH experience useful in explaining the importance of a nursing research agenda
  • Discussing the support for and the conduct of research applicable to nurse’s professional and personal development
  • Demonstrating how to design a research infrastructure and provide the resources, support, and organizational commitment needed to promote research in practice settings
  • Sharing ideas about mentoring, evidence-based practice, methods and evaluation, instruments development, and post-doctoral fellowships
  • Developing new funding sources, partnerships, team-building, and engagement in multidisciplinary research activities.
