Using research findings to improve practice and services

This series of six articles aims to encourage nurse leaders to explore how to use research findings to improve practice and services where they work. It focuses on research that has been funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and included in NIHR Dissemination Centre publications.

The authors seek to relate the content directly to the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s code of professional standards of practice and behaviour, specifically the themes of practising safely and promoting professionalism and trust.
