The Practice-based Research Challenge at Providence Health Care

Staff nurses at Providence Health Care (PHC) in Vancouver are engaging in a novel research initiative. In 2011, PHC, motivated by a desire to improve patient care through the promotion of evidence-informed practice, combined with a belief in the importance of staff nurses’ contribution to research, initiated the Practice-based Research Challenge. Developed in partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC) school of nursing, the Research Challengehas involved 200 point-of-care nurses and other health-care professionals since 2011.
