Call us nurse champions: Lessons learned in strategic partnership with nurses in clinical research

Rebecca Koszalinski, Theresa Day, Clay Kyle


This manuscript reports the perspectives of nurse managers who participated in a study at a regional medical center. The information is reported through verbatim comments that emerged through a discussion of “lessons learned”. Nursing comments are organized as the conversation flowed. The nurse managers that participated in a recently concluded study were most concerned about how any research study will affect their patients and how nurse workflow may be interrupted. Pre-established meeting times (huddles) worked best for education and training. Further, they suggested incentives may be effective; however, recognition as nurse champions and inclusion of nurse voice are preferred.
