[Scientific Session Presentation] PURPOSE:  The purpose of this research is to identify and prioritize research problems and questions of importance to nurses and the care they provide in deployed settings.   DESIGN:  The Delphi consensus technique is used to identify and prioritize deployment nursing research problems and questions.  POPULATION:  Panelists recruited for this study were US Army Nurses and US Air Force Nurses (active duty and Reserve Component) who were deployed to South-West Asia from August 2008 to January 2009  METHOD:  Round I of this Delphi study featured open-ended questions seeking information about the nursing practice problems encountered by US Army Nurses and US Air Force Nurses during recent deployments.  Research questions are consolidated from the identified research problems and organized under the theme that best captured the particular research idea.  The research questions becomes the template for the round II questionnaire.  Round III is a confirmation of the prioritization and relevance reported by the panelists during round II.DATA ANALYSIS:  Analyses in this study involves both qualitative and quantitative methodologies.  In round I, open-ended questions are coded against a thematic framework that is allowed to develop directly from the responses of the panelists.  Subsequent rounds are analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics.  FINDINGS:  The findings of this Delphi study will propose a prioritized list of deployment nursing research questions.  CONCLUSIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS:  Data is being collected at this timeIMPLICATIONS:  To date, a specific agenda for deployment nursing research priorities has not been documented.  The results of this exploratory Delphi study can provide the foundation for future studies that develop such an agenda.  FROM/TO TIME PERIOD OF STUDY:  January 2009 to present.APPROVALS:  This study was approved by the Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) as an exempted study January, 2009.    FUNDING:  None
