Abstract

Anticipation of increased numbers of older persons throughout the coming decades who will require care and assistance with chronic illnesses and functional deficits has correspondingly increased awareness of the need for nursing research to support best geriatric nursing practices. Although badly needed, research in nursing homes presents challenges. This article discusses issues and challenges of ethically acceptable and rigorous research in nursing homes that are related to the dependency and institutionalization of older persons and to setting, staff, and resident characteristics. Strategies for easing the challenges of nursing research in nursing homes are offered.
