An infrastructure for organizational support of research.
Nurses are well suited to develop, implement, and disseminate research initiatives. However, most nurses need assistance to translate the idea behind the initiative into reality. This process requires resources and support. The authors outline one organization's infrastructure by which support is provided. Collaboration between a hospital-based research team and bedside nurses has produced a successful, funded program of research that has led to dissemination of findings.
