The Ottawa Hospital supports nursing research and nursing-related activities for all nurses

Nursing research at The Ottawa Hospital includes the generation, dissemination and utilization of new knowledge that promotes excellence in professional nursing practice. Opportunities to learn more about research and share experiences are available to frontline nurses who are interested in learning more about conducting research including:

  • Close collaboration with local universities and colleges
  • Funding support
  • Mentorship

At all levels of management, there is a strong commitment to enhancing our nursing research culture. New approaches to funding nursing research and supporting novice nurse researchers are currently under way. Our main goal is to support front-line nurses to develop and conduct research projects that answer clinical practice and nursing care delivery questions.
