Abstract:
Purpose: to identify short-term and medium-to-long term clinical, managerial, and educational national nursing research priorities for Ireland. Theoretical Framework: National health strategies and research agendas are the principle frameworks within which the knowledge needed to address health problems and issues is identified and addressed. Nursing research priorities are integral to such frameworks and highlight key areas for multidisciplinary research alliances. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): A 3-round decision Delphi survey was conducted, followed by a 1-day discussion group workshop. On round 1 a national convenience sample of 780 nurses, representing all nurses in professional employment in Ireland, contributed over 5,000 clinical, managerial, and educational issues requiring research. Content analysis identified 24 priority research issues. High response rates were achieved for round 2 (90%) and round 3 (86%) questionnaires on which participants rated the importance of the issues using a 7-point rating scale. The workshop included 20% of round 3 participants who rated the issues in relation to timeframes, the Irish national health strategy, and health service reform programme. Descriptive statistics and a priority consensus standard of 80% were used. Results: Three high priority clinical issues; outcomes of care delivery, staffing issues in practice, and communication in clinical practice; and two high priority managerial issues; recruitment and retention of nurses and nursing input into health policy and decision-making; were identified, all requiring research in the short-term. The remaining 19 issues were ranked in further order of priority and in relation to short-term or medium-to-long term need for research. Conclusions and Implications: Results point to research programmes that target health service concerns identified in the Irish national health agenda, such as the need to examine areas for multidisciplinary alliances, test solutions to workforce problems, and identify protocols and procedures that improve patient and client care outcomes. These research priorities suggest areas for fruitful multidisciplinary alliances.
