At the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), nurses have boldly dared to transform their nursing program into a place where patient care, science, research, and evidence combine for improved practice, responsible economics, enhanced mentoring, and a fertile place to allow extraordinary nurses to develop. Fostering a Research-Intensive Organization addresses how a strong nursing research agenda can impact patient care and influence the redesign of services needed to effectively respond to a changing healthcare environment. This book provides a comprehensive review to support the practice environment as an important place to advance nursing science through research by: providing examples from the MGH experience useful in explaining the importance of a nursing research agenda, discussing the support for and the conduct of research applicable to nurse's professional and personal development, demonstrating how to design a research infrastructure and the provide the resources, support, and organizational commitment needed to promote research in practice settings, sharing ideas about mentoring, evidence-based practice, methods and evaluation, instrument development, and post-doctoral fellowships and developing new funding sources, partnerships, team-building, and engagement in multidisciplinary research activities.
