Abstract:
There is increased interest and critical need for the development and implementation of large multi-site clinical trials to reconcile differences in symptom management, selection and testing of interventions, nurse-sensitive outcomes, and related nursing care issues. Cooperative controlled clinical studies need to be undertaken at multiple universities and medical centers on both national and, occasionally, international levels. Increasingly nurse researchers are employing multi-site research initiatives; however, the lack of an infrastructure designed to facilitate large collaborative and cooperative clinical trials has made this difficult and progress slow. The purpose of this paper is to propose a research consortium outlining an infrastructure for nurse researchers to conduct large cooperative clinical trials at multiple universities and medical centers. Through this consortium, select studies would be open for enrollment to participating, vested organizations and researchers in an effort to increase the number of trials open and thereby increasing subject accrual. The hope for rapidly achieving good data rests in cooperative national studies at multiple universities and medical centers by sharing routine tasks, expertise, and resources. Researchers at different institutions would be able to enroll eligible patients to open studies on a national level. Albeit possible scrutiny, this may be the most viable solution to the current problem presented by small studies using different outcome measures and evaluation, and lack of long-term follow-up for survival data. Provide timely findings and answers to research questions; generate data to determine evidenced-based practice or best practice guidelines. It is critical that we identify outcome indicators for quality oncology care, and incorporate multiple aspects of patient responses to nursing care interventions. Researchers would benefit from shared resources and a vested commitment to high quality, large clinical trials using consistent measures, designs, and outcomes from which evidenced-based practice can be based. Findings generated from large clinical trials will influence health care policy to a greater extent than small individual studies. While there has been a paucity of research which addresses the critical need for a multi-site nursing research consortium, this paper will explore research infrastructures and strategies from other disciplines. Literature from medicine, federal regulatory agencies, and other disciplines will be used to construct a similar yet futuristic paradigm of a research consortium useful to nurse researchers.
