Abstract:
Purpose: This presentation describes a collaborative process to establish an association between the Department of Nursing and sponsored clinical research investigations within an Academic Medical Center. Specific aims are to (1) enhance clinical trials research through systematic application of best practices, (2) standardize research positions, and (3) integrate clinical trials research within nursing practice. Theoretical Framework: Evolution of this collaboration resulted from the Nursing Department's participation in the American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet Recognition Program. Review of the ways nurses are involved in research throughout the medical center revealed significant contributions and involvement in clinical trials investigations. Variation, however, existed in the positions that nurses held within the clinical trials network. An infrastructure to systematically integrate the network of clinical trials nurses within the research mission was needed. The restructuring approach was embedded within the Magnet framework. This framework posits that nursing leadership is visionary and responsive, nursing practice is established within a shared and open environment, and professional growth and career advancement opportunities are available. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): An initial step was to standardize the several existing research positions. The collaborative process began with review of current research positions within the clinical trials network. The review considered the roles and responsibilities needed for clinical trials investigations, and included representatives from human resources and the clinical trials network. Results: Six standardized research positions, reporting to the department of nursing, were identified and categorized according to expertise and skills. Responsibilities of each position were described and requirements for professional development and career advanced were clarified. Conclusions and Implications: This standardized approach to position redesign within the clinical trials network acknowledged nurses' essential contribution to the institution's research mission. Additionally, standardization of the research positions makes clear the steps for career advancement and provides direction for professional development. These outcomes ultimately contribute to enhancement and promotion of quality clinical trials research.
