Title:
Building International Research Networks
Abstract:
Building International Research Networks
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2004
Conference Date:July 22-24, 2004
Author:Tyer-Viola, Lynda, RNC
P.I. Institution Name:Massachusetts General Hospital
Title:Clinical Nurse Specialist
Purpose: Building international nursing knowledge is one of the cornerstones of affirming nursing as a discipline. International research though has been difficult to sustain due to perceived incompatibility of practice environments, healthcare systems and research initiatives. The commitment of nurse researchers to engage international colleagues on issues which are salient to nursing practice will add value in all practice settings, promote interprofessional sharing and enhance the contribution to nursing knowledge. Framework: The commonalties of the nursing profession are the four ways of knowing defined by Carper (1978): empirics, ethics, aesthetics and self. Using this framework, an international research agenda can be established. Within each pattern are commonalities as well as distinctions that, once navigated, will strengthen the process. Knowledge of culturally defined warrantable evidence, the purpose and function of the respective Ethic’s Committee reviews, the perceptions of nursing as science, and the image or position of nursing within respective cultures are all key facets to establishing a research network. Application: An example of such a research initiative has been created with two National Health Trust Maternity Services and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston Massachusetts. By sharing practice experiences and exploring the four patterns of knowing, a research project to describe the phenomenon of Care of Pregnant Women with HIV is being established.
