CHP researchers shared research findings of the Research on the State of Nursing (RESON) project at an interactive colloquium on 12 July 2012 which wrapped up the four-year research project funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies.This work aimed to develop and strengthen the evidence for improved nursing policy development and practice in South Africa through three main research areas:
1) Policy analysis – scope of practice, qualifications framework, occupational specific dispensation, and the country’s nursing strategy
2) Casualisation: Nursing agencies and moonlighting
3) Nursing management and quality of care
Over 40 stakeholders from the private and public sector, national and provincial health departments, academics and NGOs including DENOSA and the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) attended the last meeting of the RESON Advisory Committee to hear the findings of these three core research projects, and to propose strategies for getting this research into policy and practice.Click here
