Introduction Teaching hospitals, community care settings and academic centers in Canada have not effectively addressed the research component of their academic mandate. The Practice and Research in Nursing (PRN) Group at Queen’s University was created in 2003 as an innovative academic practice partnership to help advance nursing research and the discipline of academic nursing within the health care regions served by the Southeastern Ontario Health Science Center (SEOHSC). The mission of the group is to produce and use evidence, to plan and execute organizational changes to promote effectiveness and efficiency in nursing that is of benefit to the health of Canadians. The group led by 3 nurse scientists developed and implemented an integrated program of research and research activities, in collaboration with clinical practice partners. Relevance to Nursing This integrated model helps to position the partnership organizations of SEOHSC to meet their academic mandate within the available resources and expertise. Shared research methodologies, foci of care, practice issues and populations provide a common base upon which nursing knowledge builds. The PRN group works with nurses and students to develop their research knowledge and expertise, and to develop their capacity for knowledge translation and application in clinical practice. Educational, research and practice activities take place on an individual and organizational level. The nature of the collaboration allows the PRN Group to contribute on an international level towards the promotion of multinational research initiatives focused on effectiveness and efficiency of nursing practice. Summary This presentation outlines one example of how a Canadian health sciences center is working to meet its academic mandate. In this presentation we will discuss the planning and implementation stages, the components of the integrated program and our future goals.
