Conduct of multisite clinical studies by professional organizations.
ISSUES AND PURPOSE:Professional organizations are embracing collaborative multisite research and research utilization projects. This report describes the strategies undertaken and lessons learned from SPN's first multisite study. CONCLUSIONS:Infrastructure concerns (e.g., vision, communication, dissemination of results, resources, and human rights protections) and methodological issues specific to multisite research must be addressed to ensure a successful study. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:Multisite studies are an effective mechanism for more rapidly advancing nursing theory and evidence-based nursing practice.
