Research

Principal Investigator for TRACS (Transition, Resilience, Authentic Leadership, Commitment, Support) project: The Making TRACS to Improve Nurse Retention project seeks to answer the question of whether the retention rate of registered nursing staff in one hospital can be improved through the development and use of an evidence-based nurse retention model, to be known as TRACS.

This is a collaborative project between Bournemouth University’s Faculty of Health and Social Sciences (FHSS) and the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH), and is funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing. The Patients Association is acting as an external consultant to the project. https://research.bournemouth.ac.uk/project/making-tracs-to-improve-nurse-retention/ The project is over the half way stage and has developed an interactive web portal of resources to support registered nurses. We will shortly be approaching our final data collection and are planning a dissemination event at Bournemouth University on 1st July 2019.
