The nursing profession must continue to adapt to the complexities of modern healthcare delivering consistently excellent care. Research is the key, as it is in any professional field, to advance and improve practice. Evidence from research influences and shapes the nursing profession, informs and underpins policy, professional decision-making and nursing actions. But to continue to have evidence-based practice, we need new evidence. Only high-quality nurse-led research can deliver this new knowledge and practice, ultimately transforming care. To keep improving patient and health outcomes care nurses must lead in research. Nurse-led research brings about better understanding of the needs of patients and service users, delivers interventions and innovations that improve practice and we all benefit from this.
