CASN – National Research Priorities for Nursing

The purpose of developing national research priorities for nursing is (a) to identify key areas where the development of nursing knowledge is of current importance to health care in Canada, (b) to support research capacity in these areas, and (c) to provide potential non-government funders of health research with direction regarding research needs related to nursing. The overarching goal of this initiative is to generate and translate nursing knowledge that will promote the health of Canadians and optimize the delivery of health care.

While the national nursing research priorities provide nurse researchers with lines of inquiry to pursue, they are not meant to be prescriptive or exclusive of other research interests. Instead, they represent an effort to highlight areas where the advancement of the knowledge base for nursing practice is of current importance for the profession and for health care.
