Title:
Nursing research in the V.A. system: A consortium approach
Abstract:
Nursing research in the V.A. system: A consortium approach
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:1992
Conference Date:May 19 - 22, 1992
Author:Asderian, Evelyn, MA/AM
Title:Nursing Coordinator
The purpose of this study was to examine the state of nursing

research in Veterans Administration facilities, and the use of

consortium arrangements to promote nursing research. Research

questions asked were, @Is there a relationship between the

productivity of nursing research and the presence or absence of an

Associate Chief of Nursing Service for Research?@ And, @Is the

V.A. System conducive to consortium arrangements for nursing

research?@ Using systems theory as a guide, the rationale for the

study was information in the literature on the usefulness of

consortium arrangements to advance nursing research, and the

experience of the Nursing Research Committee of Greater New York,

a two year old consortium of representatives from the five V.A.s in

the greater NY area.



A survey was designed, piloted, refined, and sent to all 171 VA

medical centers nationwide. Voluntary responses were taken as

evidence of informed consent. With a 74 percent response rate, 91

percent of the facilities were found to have a nursing research

committee, and 40 percent to have a collaborative affiliation.

Productivity (measured by proposals reviewed and funded) was higher

where a doctorally-prepared staff member occupied the position of

Associate Chief, Nursing Service, Research.



The advantages and disadvantages of consortium arrangements are

reviewed based on the literature, the experience of the consortium,

and the survey. Consortium arrangements are suggested for V.A. and

other multi-site medical facilities (such as city, state,

proprietary, and religious hospital systems) to increase the

quality and quantity of nursing research, where mechanisms for

overcoming the difficulties of meeting and sharing information are

already in place.
