ABSTRACT

Part 1 of this 2 part article appeared in the preceding (January/February) issue of this journal. Results from the 1987–88 ACNM Needs Assessment Survey pertaining to research are presented. As with other topics addressed in Part 1 of the Needs Assessment Survey, subgroup analysis was conducted to determine if certain groups of CNMs had differing views and perceived needs regarding research. Survey responses were categorized to include: 1) CNM attitudes about research, 2) importance of ACNM research related services and activities, 3) use of a uniform data collection instrument, 4) CNM access to research resources, and 5) views on funding for ACNM research activities. Discussion of the implications of the results as they relate to development of the goals and objectives of the newly formed ACNM Division of Research is included.
