Abstract

In today's demanding clinical environments it is challenging for nurses to undertake research. Barriers include time, limited self-belief and confidence, commitment, limited knowledge of the research process, and lack of administrative support. Yet nurses are curious and many have ideas to improve clinical care and patient outcomes.

This paper discusses how community nursing service, Sydney District Nursing, has developed a congenial and collegial process to improve the culture of nursing research, and to support its nurses to undertake research and develop quality improvement projects.
