Update on NINR Innovative Questions Initiative

The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) launched the Innovative Questions (IQ) initiative in 2013 to identify novel scientific questions through an interactive website and scientific workshops with leading experts in the field. The response reflects the ingenuity of those in the field of nursing science and the commitment to improve health and quality of life for individuals across populations and across the lifespan.

About the Special Issue The Journal of Nursing Scholarship invites authors to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that address the development, evaluation, or implementation of innovative care models in residential long-term care including models* shaping the transitions between different settings. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
• Description of new models of care focusing on residential long-term care or the transitions to and from long-term care facilities;
• Theoretical frameworks for developing new models of care;
• Comparative effectiveness research, cost-effectiveness or cost-utility analysis of different models of care;
• Implementation and sustainability of new models of care focusing on feasibility and acceptance by staff, residents, relatives;
• These new models of care could, among others, focus on the following themes:

- The use of technology and information systems that directly impact the care or the way that care is organized; - Architectural adaptations or structural reorganizations from re-designing the living spaces to re-thinking the care routine; - Empowerment of residents and relatives (e.g., through introducing person-centered care, active participation towards health promotion and prevention, disease management, and communication); - Changes in resource allocation or workforce capacity (e.g., change in skill mix, use of APNs or mobile consultation teams). *A ‘model of care’ is a multifaceted concept which broadly defines the way health services are delivered, outlining best practice care delivery through the application of a set of service principles across identified clinical streams and flow continuums.
