Foundation of Nursing Studies and General Nursing Council for England and Wales Trust Practice-Based Development and Research Programme
Call for Applications
Practice-based research and development is an opportunity for nurses to understand more about their work and the experiences of patients, and use this to ensure that patients’ needs are identified and met. However, whilst there is growing interest in using practice-orientated research methodologies, nurses in practice need support to further develop their knowledge and skills in order to use such approaches.
Supported by FoNS in partnership with the General Nursing Council for England and Wales Trust, this practice-based development and research programme aims to support nurse-led healthcare teams over a period of two years, to work together with patients, staff and wider stakeholders to undertake an action research project in a clinical setting to achieve improvements in patient care.
Who can apply?
Any registered nurses, health visitors, or other specialist community nurses working in clinical practice in England and Wales who can demonstrate evidence from practice to support the need for their project and who are committed to working systematically and collaboratively.
What does the programme offer?
The programme offers support and facilitation to plan, implement and evaluate effective actions; seminars/workshops; funding of up to £5,000 and help with sharing and publication.
Closing dates for applications: 19th February 2014
