Nursing interventions can be effective in promoting health and adaptation in individuals and families experiencing health-related transitions. In the current context care with shorter-stay hospitalizations, higher levels of technology, and more responsibility given to individuals and families, there is an urgent need to develop and evaluate nursing interventions. Thus, a Canadian nursing research group, Groupe de recherche inter-universitaire en soins infirmiers de Montréal (GRISIM), was officially launched in 2003, with financial support from the Newton Fondation, and provincial and federal governments. The goals of GRISIM are a) to develop and evaluate solid, innovative nursing interventions to generate further evidence-based nursing knowledge; b) to create and consolidate a critical mass of nursing scientists who knows both the substantive and the contextual positions of nursing in health care, as well as sophisticated methodologies, and c) to transfer new knowledge from research into the clinical arena. The overarching conceptual framework of GRISIM is Transitions with three axes as a focal point for the nursing interventions. The three major axes involve: a) problematic developmental transitions affecting health, b) health crises, and c) transitions across health care delivery systems. Each of these axes will take into consideration the populations: a) vulnerable groups, b) specific diagnostic groups, and c) natural caregivers and the following modalities: a) innovative technologies, b) direct nurse-patient interactions, and c) group approaches. The McGill University and l’Université de Montréal, both situated in Montréal Canada, are two research-intensive Faculties of nursing each affiliated with many health care delivery centers. Together they have the potential to impact nursing practice through the development and evaluation of nursing interventions and the training of nurse researchers. The consequences of GRISIM could well be far-reaching for implementation of evidence-based nursing practice.
