Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: A unique 40-year partnership between McGill University and affiliated teaching hospitals is transforming. Major changes in the organizational contexts provided opportunity to redefine the partnership. The School asked clinical partners to assist in introducing new approaches to developing graduate student competencies in advanced practice and research. Concurrently, the clinical partners' departmental priorities included strengthening capacity for evidenced-based practice and evaluation of practice changes. A jointly designed new approach permitted each partner to reach its goals. The School offers a four-course sequence: research methods, project development, implementation, and knowledge translation. The clinical partners solicit clinicians to be project advisors for research topics related to their own burning issues. Other partnership features include joint review and prioritization of submissions; students choosing projects, faculty and clinicians support mechanisms and dissemination both within the School and clinical settings. Over the series of courses, students refine the research question, develop and implement the study protocol, present results, prepare a manuscript for submission and collaborate with clinicians to implement a knowledge transfer plan or a clinical improvement project sometimes related to the research findings Outcomes include dissemination of results, advanced clinical research programs, building research capacity and competencies in clinical settings and clinical practice changes.
