The Influence of Culture on the Research Process: Perspectives of Co-Researchers from Different Cultures
Abstract:
The Influence of Culture on the Research Process: Perspectives of Co-Researchers from Different Cultures
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Brandi, Cheryl Lynn, DNSc, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Aichi Medical University
Title:Professor of Nursing
Co-Authors:Akiko Naito, BEd, MSN, MBA, RN
Background: There has been increasing emphasis on multinational and cross-cultural nursing research, but not a lot of literature on the challenges of conducting research in a very different culture or by a cross-cultural team. The presenters (American and Japanese), who are also co-researchers and faculty at the same university in Japan, received a 3-year Japan Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture grant in 2001 to conduct qualitative research about the perspectives of top nurse administrators in Japan. The first presenter did this research independently in the United States in 1997. This time, both presenters have been involved in all phases of research. Although the research in Japan is still in-progress, culture has played a big role throughout the research process. Issues of language, translation, research process, cultural practices, organizational systems, and impact upon participants are a few of the issues that co-researchers have had to confront. Implications: By sharing first-hand experiences and creating dialogue on this topic, the researchers hope to stimulate awareness as well as lessen the barriers to conducting future research that involves crossing cultures.
