Director’s Message
As we complete the fifth year of our strategic alliance between the University of Warwick and
the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), I am pleased to report that we are thriving.
We are delighted to be able to continue our strategic alliance going forward and have been
working hard with the RCN to ensure our research helps both the RCN and the University of
Warwick deliver their strategic objectives.
The Research Excellence Framework has been a necessary focus over the past year and staff
have been productive, with 32 papers published in 2011-2012. Our work is also highly cited,
with levels of career citations being described as very good or excellent for 49 and as
exceptional1 for 5 of our publications.
We have continued to value and model a collaborative inclusive approach to our research. We
have been working with a range of national and international academic experts, with health
care professionals and users of services as together we can deliver on a dynamic and exciting
research agenda.
I would like to thank everyone in the RCN Research Institute for their hard work, rigour,
collaboration, supportive approach and general good humour. It makes a big difference and I
really appreciate it.
I would also like to thank everyone who has supported and challenged us throughout the year.
Janet Davies, Director of Nursing and Service Delivery at the RCN and Professor Stuart Croft,
Pro Vice Chancellor for Research (Arts & Social Sciences) at the University of Warwick deserve
special mention as their wise counsel and challenge has helped us develop. Our Joint Advisory
Board members have helped us refine and extend our research, providing constructive analysis
and helping us keep on track, expertly chaired by Professor Sally Kendall.
We have many new challenges ahead in 2012-13, which we are looking forward to embracing
within a framework of academic rigour, professionalism, collaboration and resilience.

Summary of Progress
Ongoing Research
RCN RI research is organised around three themes; patient and public involvement and patient
and nurse experiences; patient reported outcomes; and translating knowledge into practice.
Our website has more details http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/shss/rcn/research. All
ongoing research is within budget and agreed timeframes. All annual or final reports submitted
as required by funders have been accepted.
Publications
The Research Excellence Framework has been a focus over the past year and staff have been
productive, with 32 papers published in 2011-2012. Our work is also highly cited, with levels of
career citations being described as very good or excellent for 49 and as exceptional2 for 5 of
our publications.
Grants
We have been successful in generating grant income, with ten externally funded grants running
during the period of this report and a research income of well over half a million pounds. We
continue to work collaboratively on grant applications nationally and internationally, and health
professionals and users of services are important collaborators on these grants.
Measures of Esteem
Members of the RCN RI have a variety of measures of external esteem, including membership of
a Research Excellence Framework panel, editorial board membership, invited plenary lectures,
invited national and international scientific committees, contribution to national policy
initiatives and contribution to the academic community via external examining, especially at
PhD level.
PhD Students
It has been an exciting year with many interesting studies underway. One of our international
full time PhD students was awarded her PhD with minor corrections. This represents much hard
work and intellectual rigour as well as a long time away from family, so many congratulations
to Mayada Diabes. Progress of all students is monitored by the Director of Graduate Studies and
the Graduate Research Committee and is satisfactory.
Strategic Alliance
The strategic alliance between the RCN and the University of Warwick is developing well. We
are delighted to be able to continue this relationship, and the progress of the strategic alliance
is reviewed by our Joint Advisory Board.
Other developments
Our research strategy is continually updated, in collaboration with all members of the RCN RI.
We will continue to work towards more programmatic funding rather then individual grants to
increase the sustainability of the unit. We have a range of strategic collaborations both
nationally and internationally.

Contribution of RCN RI to the University
RCN RI staff attend the Graduate Research Committee and the school meeting. Professor Seers
is part of the School of Health and Social Studies (SHSS) executive team, is Director of Research
for SHSS and has been Professor Responsible for the department since April 2012. She also
attends faculty research directors’ meetings and is part of a Research Excellence Framework
working group. Professor Seers and Dr Hayward are part of the Faculty of Social Sciences
Board. Dr Staniszewska is Director of Graduate Studies (continuing students) for SHSS, Chairs
the Graduate Research Committee and is Research Staff Member of the Staff-Student Liaison
Committee. She is Departmental Champion and Member of the Advisory Group for Global
Prioritise Programme (Health and Technology) and Departmental Representative for ESRC
Doctoral Training Centre Board. Dr Mockford is a representative on the Research Staff Forum
for the School of Health and Social Studies and Deputy Representative for the Forum on the
University’s Research Committee. Ms Kennedy is the School’s First Aider and Mr Kent is the
school’s Fire Marshal. The RCN RI staff also contribute as members of MPhil to PhD upgrade
panels, act as exam advisors and internal examiners at Masters and PhD level, and organise and
contribute to research surgeries, journal clubs and Research and Development seminars.
Contribution of the University to the RCN RI
RCN RI staff access an extensive programme of training and development within the University.
They have successfully applied for internal research development funding, and Institute of
Advanced Studies monies to pump prime research collaborations with international academics.
This range of opportunities is funded by service charges contributed to through payment from
the RCN RI. There are also many opportunities for collaboration with colleagues from a variety
of departments. We have also received support and challenge from our ProVC for research in
the Faculty of Social Science, which has been helpful and welcome.
Contribution of RCN RI to Royal College of Nursing
Staff have helped develop the strategic alliance with the RCN, contributing to building an
authoritative body of knowledge relevant to nursing. We work closely with RCN staff and
members on a number of issues. For example, working with rheumatology forum members and
RCN advisers on fatigue in a long term condition; working with RCN staff around Principles of
Practice, and continence issues. We also disseminate our work via our newsletter and
presentations at the RCN.
Leadership
Strong strategic leadership underpins the effectiveness and culture of the RCN RI. We
endeavour to model valuing and respect of all staff as we believe this is essential for a team to
function well and to enable staff to develop to their full potential. Several staff have
undertaken leadership programmes, to ensure effective leadership at all levels. Ensuing
appropriate staff development is seen as a crucial contribution towards stability and succession
planning.
Conclusion
The RCN RI remains at the forefront of knowledge generation. It has continued to thrive at the
University of Warwick. Healthy grant income, high quality publications, and a good working
relationship with the RCN has helped embed the strategic alliance, and concrete plans for
future development are in place, working towards ensuring the sustainability of the RCN RI.

The Royal College of Nursing Research Institute (RCN RI)
The RCN RI was formerly the Research Team at the Royal College of Nursing Institute from 19962007. When the RCN wished to develop a strategic alliance with another Higher Education
Institute to enhance its ability to deliver high quality research, the University of Warwick was
successful in its bid to be the RCN’s strategic alliance partner for research. The RCN RI has been a
Research Centre within the School of Health & Social Studies at the University of Warwick since 1st
August 2007.
Aims of the RCN Research Institute
The RCN RI is committed to staying at the leading edge of research in our specialist areas via
national and international inter-disciplinary collaboration. Specifically we aim to:
1. Produce high quality research that improves patient care and impacts on policy.
2. Increase research capacity within nursing by providing high quality research training.
3. Contribute towards the RCN delivering on its strategic objectives.
