Abstract

Background: Research conducted in the clinical area promotes the delivery of evidence-based patient care. Involving nurses as participants in research is considered essential to link patient care with evidence-based interventions. However recruitment is influenced by nurses’ competing demands and understanding engagement strategies may assist future research. Aim: This reflective analysis aimed to understand influencing factors and strategies that support successful recruitment nurses in clinical research. Method: A reflective analysis of research notes and focus group data from research with oncology nurses was completed. Results: This research identified that gaining support from key staff, understanding work constraints and developing a rapport with nurses is important. Establishing clear relevance and benefits of the research and being flexible with research requirements enabled nurses to participate in the research. Conclusion: Clear information and a willingness to accommodate the demands and dynamic nature of the environment, ensures ongoing support and engagement of nurses in the clinical setting as participants in research.
