Cohort 5 Projects Start TODAY

We are pleased to announce that our six newly-funded research projects begin today.

Over the past four years, INQRI grants have supported research to establish links between nursing and the quality of care delivered to people within and across a variety of health care settings. This year’s grants will support studies that focus on disseminating and implementing programs that have proven effective. Each new  team receives an 18-month grant of up to $300,000 to support a project that explores the relationship between nursing and health care with a focus on developing evidence on how to disseminate and implement programs that are known to work. INQRI will share the results of this research with policy-makers, hospital administrators and others who make decisions about how nursing resources are distributed to improve quality and patient outcomes.
