Session presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Problem

Meaningful interventional research requires increasingly complex, cross-disciplinary and sustainable collaborations from question development through translation to practice.

Method

This process evaluation reviews the history, barriers, growth and longevity of an unusual and lasting set of relationships between one University based nurse researcher in maternal child health and two large administrative structures responsible for protection of the public from criminal activity. Literature was reviewed for collaboration, peer affiliation and innovation theories that explained the process. Pivotal activities are identified within this framework across a decade of productive interactions. Multiple measurable outcomes continue to be widely reported.

Results

The unlikely long-term collaborations between a doctorally prepared nurse research scientist at a major private University and two public sector administrations in criminal justice formed a sound foundation for innovative studies linked directly with evidence based practice in community health and justice.  Shared goals and values were motivational from the outset.  Understanding language specific to  disciplines and divergent methodologies used had to be learned over time since disciplinary history, culture and strategies vary much.  Strikingly, the permanence of the developed partnerships was not built on a funding relationship as each had to seek out own resources. Highlights over a decade that provided  mutual professional and social benefit include an unprecedented longitudinal study of  State prison nursery program participants, a shared presentation with additional vested interest representatives at a national conference, and the development and evaluation of a unique alternative to incarceration community residence.

Conclusion

The unusual private/ public partnerships described bring together academic and societal agendas. They  have been created and used over a decade providing a sustainable model for other non-traditional partnering for effective translational research and  public service.
