Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: In February 2007, researchers from Canada, the Caribbean (Jamaica and Barbados) and sub-Saharan Africa (Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa) received funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) to implement a program of research entitled "Strengthening Nurses' Capacity in HIV Policy Development in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean". The program of research will provide a critical platform for developing research and leadership capacity among nurses and midwives. The "leadership hub" is a key conceptual and practical dimension within this program of research. Through the formation of leadership hubs nurse leaders from academic, practice and policy environments will link with decision-makers in government and with other stakeholders from non-governmental organizations and the community to strengthen evidence-informed public policy. Specifically it is envisioned that the collaboration facilitated by the leadership hubs will function as a lever for change to translate HIV and AIDS research findings into action for policy and practice. Leadership hubs are an innovative approach to strengthen the research to policy link through the involvement of nurse leaders in different settings and both individual and institutional levels. In this presentation, we will describe the early formation of leadership hubs and discuss the challenges associated with this process.
