2015-2016 small research grants awarded

Thirteen nurse researchers were selected among 93 applications to receive a 2015-2016 small research grant. These researchers are focusing on a wide array of healthcare issues; including improving communications between healthcare providers and families, predicting nursing student success, weight management, and treatment of patients in South Africa for tuberculosis. You can see the full list of studies funded this cycle online.

These grants are possible thanks to donations from members and friends of nursing to the Sigma Theta Tau International Foundation for Nursing. You can support more of these opportunities by making a donation in support of research.

Thank you to those of you who made these grants possible through your personal donations to the STTI Foundation.

Louise Strickland received one of these small grants for her project: Development of a Patient Reported Outcome Measure for Post-Operative Recovery Following Lower Limb Joint Replacement Surgery.


“This study will assess patient reported factors that are important in recovery, develop a patient reported outcome measure for post-operative recovery following lower limb joint replacement surgery, and validate the score in an independent population. The results will directly impact on clinical practice as they will allow clinicians to assess patient recovery and will stimulate research to optimise the patient journey. 

The results of this study will be directly applicable to patients undergoing lower limb joint replacement surgery and permit the development and implementation of evidence-based practice in Enhanced Recovery.”

Louise Strickland, MSN, BSN (Alpha Upsilon Chapter, United Kingdom)
