Director’s Message
Our strategic alliance between the University of Warwick and the Royal College of Nursing
(RCN) has continued to strengthen during the sixth year of our partnership. We have
worked hard with the RCN to ensure we help the RCN deliver its strategic objectives.
We have had some major changes over the past year. In February 2013 we became part of
Warwick Medical School and moved to the Medical School site in April 2013. We would
like to thank all of our colleagues from our previous home, the School of Health and Social
Studies, for their collegiality during the productive five years we spent with them. The
School of Health and Social Studies has now been disestablished, with most of those doing
health related research moving to Warwick Medical School. We have been made to feel
welcome by colleagues at the Medical School, and were already collaborating with many
of them, so the move has strengthened these collaborations and facilitated new ones.
We have been very productive over the past year; both with papers published and grant
income, as our annual report shows. Our working environment is very important to all of
us in the RCN Research Institute. We continue to aim to demonstrate collegiality,
integrity, fairness and respect within a supportive and challenging environment.
We value a collaborative inclusive approach to our research. We have been working with a
range of national and international experts including academics, health care professionals
and users of services as together we can deliver on a dynamic and exciting research
Thank-you to everyone in the RCN Research Institute for their dependability, passion for
excellence, and for their support. I always know you will work hard to meet the
challenges our work presents, and will do so with good grace.
I would also like to thank everyone who has supported and challenged us throughout the
year. Janet Davies, Director of Nursing and Service Delivery and Steve Jamieson, Head of
Nursing, at the RCN, and Professor Martin Underwood & Professor Aileen Clarke at the
University of Warwick deserve special mention as their support and challenge has helped
us develop. Our Joint Advisory Board members have been generous with their time and
asked questions that have made us think, and this has helped us refine and extend our
research, and kept us on track. Some of our Joint Advisory Board members will complete
their term on our Board at our November 2013 meeting, so a special thank-you to them
for their really constructive contributions.
We look forward to 2013-14 and all it will bring. We will be keeping our qualities of
academic rigour, professionalism, collaboration and resilience firmly at the front of our
minds as we meet these challenges.

Summary of Progress
Ongoing Research
RCN RI research is organised around three themes; patient & public involvement and patient &
nurse experiences; patient reported outcomes; and translating knowledge into practice. Our
website has more details: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/med/research/hscience/rcn/research
All ongoing research is within budget and agreed timeframes. All annual or final reports submitted
as required by funders are either under review or have been accepted.
The Research Excellence Framework has been a focus over the past year and staff have been
productive, with 29 papers published in 2012-2013. Our work is also highly cited, with levels of
career citations being described as good, very good or excellent for 62 of our publications and of
those citation rates for six are described as “exceptional”.1
We have been successful in generating grant income, with ten externally funded grants running
during the period of this report. 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. The PhD students who had
started with us in the School of Health and Social Studies continue under those regulations. All
new PhD students starting with us are now registered under Warwick Medical School regulations.
Strategic Alliance
The strategic alliance between the RCN and the University of Warwick is developing really 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.
Our newsletter continues to be published quarterly. It provides key messages from our activity and
is disseminated widely as well as being on our website.
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
Up until February 2013 RCN RI staff attended the Graduate Research Committee and the school
meeting in the School of Health and Social Studies (SHSS). Professor Seers was part of the School
of Health and Social Studies (SHSS) executive team, Director of Research for SHSS and was
Professor Responsible for the department from April 2012. She also attended faculty research
directors’ meetings and was part of a Research Excellence Framework working group. In addition
she was appointed investigating officer in SHSS for a university issue. Professor Seers and Dr
Hayward were part of the Faculty of Social Sciences Board. Dr Staniszewska was Director of
Graduate Studies (continuing students) for SHSS, chaired the Graduate Research Committee and
was Research Staff Member of the Staff-Student Liaison Committee. She remains Member of the
Advisory Group for Global Prioritise Programme (Health and Technology) and was Departmental
Representative for ESRC Doctoral Training Centre Board. Dr Mockford was a representative on the
Research Staff Forum for SHSS and Deputy Representative for the Forum on the University’s
Research Committee. Ms Kennedy was the School’s First Aider and Mr Kent was the school’s Fire
Marshal. The RCN RI staff also contributed as members of MPhil to PhD upgrade panels, PhD exam
advisors and internal examiners at Masters and PhD level. They also organised and contributed to
research surgeries, journal clubs and Research and Development seminars. From February 2013 Dr
Staniszewska has been a member of the WMS Research Strategy Group. Professor Seers has been a
member of the Warwick Medical School (WMS) Divisional Strategy Group and is also a mentor for
the University’s Coaching and Mentoring Scheme, a mediator, and has been appointed as
investigating officer for a University matter.
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.
There are also many opportunities for collaboration with colleagues from a variety of
departments, and a range of seminars to attend.
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 relevant to the RCN. We have worked closely with the RCN on patient and
public involvement and a range of research related issues. The amount of team work has
increased significantly with more integrated ways of working, contributing to the work of the RCN.
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. Ensuring appropriate staff development
is seen as a crucial contribution towards stability and succession planning. Professor Seers was
awarded a DSc from the University of Warwick in July 2013. This is a higher award for a sustained
and substantial contribute to scientific knowledge.
The RCN RI remains at the forefront of knowledge generation. It has continued to thrive at the
University of Warwick. We continue to develop research capacity relevant to nursing, including
through supervising PhD students. Healthy grant income, high quality publications, and a good
working relationship with the RCN have enhanced the strategic alliance.
