Abstract

There is a paucity of research in the area of nurse engagement in the process of practice development. Little is published about the sequencing of engagement with consent and pre-measures in a research project. It has, however, been recognized that without engagement, development of one's practice, and subsequently health service change, would be minimal. This article reports on nurse engagement in the first six weeks of the implementation of a new model of care in two correctional service health care settings.
