Neonatal Nurses Research Priorities-Survey: Looking for Participants


To determine the most important research priorities identified by neonatal nurses, a small group from the Council of International Neonatal Nurses, Inc. (COINN), Research Section has developed an online survey. We are inviting nurses from all over the globe to take part in the survey and we hope that the findings will underpin the development international research projects in the future. Most importantly, we really want to understand what you as nurses consider the important research priorities to be. Neonatal nurses from 70 countries contribute to COINN, with an estimated 5000 members, there is a real opportunity to have a voice about the direction of future research. This survey is a small step towards giving neonatal nursing a stronger research voice. Members of the COINN Community are invited to participate via the hyperlink here and on the COINN website and on Facebook. The survey is will be open from 30 March to 31 May 2018 and completely voluntary, anonymous and confidential. The findings will be presented at the COINN Conference to be held in Auckland, New Zealand, May 2019 and will also be published in international journals.
