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 provided routinely through activities such as:

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

The nursing research culture is enhanced through the commitment at all levels of management, a dedicated Nursing Research Lead position, and the Nursing Research Work Group.  At The Ottawa Hospital, you will see research being done to answer clinically important questions!

The Nursing Research Work Group is made up of clinical nurses, advanced practice nurses, managers, faculty members, research leaders and students committed to supporting and guiding nursing research at The Ottawa Hospital and promoting regional collaboration.

Research Funding and Grant Opportunities

At The Ottawa Hospital nursing is very fortunate to have funding resources provided through the generous contributions of endowment funds and individual and corporate donations.  Twice a year, Ottawa Hospital nurses have an opportunity to apply for funding to support the undertaking of research and research-related projects.  Applications are available from, and peer-reviewed by, the Nursing Research Work Group.

The intent of these awards is to foster growing participation in Nursing Research and to contribute to enhanced patient care through consideration and awareness of nursing issues.
