Abstract

This paper describes a national initiative to establish a co-ordinated and systematic method for identifying priorities for research and development, jointly set up by the Royal College of Nursing and the Centre for Policy in Nursing Research. It uses an explicit policy-making model described by Lomas1 to outline the stages of the project. This model is also used to consider how nursing is influencing the current national clinical effectiveness and research and development agendas. Consideration is given as to whether the priority- setting exercise could make a difference to this wider policy agenda.
