This presentation describes the establishment and evolution of a self-supporting College of Nursing research center. The center is designed to facilitate multidisciplinary, clinical research in a mid-sized University setting. Initially established with grant funding, the Health Evaluation and Lifestyle Promotion (HELP) Center provides access to populations with chronic illnesses, mentors with expertise in clinical research and practice, database support, technical and secretarial services, and research and clinical space. Descriptive and interventional clinical research programs undertaken within the HELP Center vary from smoking cessations programs to physiologic outcomes of chronic-illness to quality of life issues. These studies will be the framework for discussion on developing and maintaining a research team, establishing multidiscipline linkages, incorporating new components into a research program, working in multi-center studies, obtaining self-supporting status, and coaching and mentoring of students, clinicians, and faculty. The purpose is to provide a model for development of a nurse-lead self-supporting, multidisciplinary center that bridges the gap between clinical research and practice. The format includes a slide presentation followed by panel discussion with questions and answers. The criteria for leadership are meet by highlighting strategies undertaken to grow a team, promote credibility within nursing and other fields, prioritize and attain needed environmental and financial resources, and develop nurse leaders. Since the establishment of the HELP Center, over 20 researchers have engaged in collaborative research. Scholarly outcomes include over 7 funded studies resulting in nearly 100 publications, and over 125 presentations.
