The Canadian Association of Paediatric Nurses (CAPN), is pleased to support Dr. Peter Gill’s project entitled “Patient-oriented research priorities for pediatric hospital care: a James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership”. The primary objective of this important study is to conduct a priority setting exercise to identify the ten most important unanswered research questions about pediatric hospital care that are important to parents and healthcare professionals. This study will play a key role in assisting to guide the priorities of the newly formed Canadian Pediatric Inpatient Research Network (PIRN), a hospital-based research network focused on improving the outcomes of hospitalized children through the conduct of multi-centre patient-oriented research. Dr. Gill is seeking CIHR funding for this project. Karen Breen-Reid, RN, MN, a nurse at The Hospital for Sick Children, and CAPN member is one of the co-investigators for this project.
Dr. Gill is an early career researcher and emerging leader in hospital pediatrics. By collaborating on this important project, he will continue in his leadership role, generating new knowledge on key research uncertainties for pediatric hospital care that will ultimately improve care and outcomes for children managed by nurses, pediatricians and other healthcare professionals. Our interest in these findings is sincere, and we pledge to work collaboratively with Dr. Gill, and his team, to disseminate results aptly and effectively.
