In this presentation, Professor Dame Nicky Cullum will briefly discuss why nurse-led health services research is essential for good health care and illustrate its contribution with some examples from her own field of wounds research. She will explore the reasons why research evidence is often not seen as clinically useful before moving to examine how we might use strategies such as research prioritisation and co-production to increase the likelihood that our research that is useful and used. Professor Cullum will conclude with some case studies from the UK Research Excellence Framework of how nurse-led research has really made a difference to health care and outcomes.
