Abstract

This article reports the success, or otherwise, of strategies implemented to sustain nursing grand rounds in a large regional health service in North Queensland, Australia. Nursing grand rounds had been introduced in late 2010 to increase nurses' engagement with research and evidence-based practice. Although the format, topics, and purpose of grand rounds have changed, attendees continue to positively evaluate each presentation. However, after 5 years, the initiative has expanded and somewhat modified its focus. This article describes these changes and proposes options for the future progression of this professional development activity.
