Abstract

The promotion of stakeholder partnerships features within practice development work and is intuitively appealing, but in reality meaningful partnerships can be problematic. We report the findings of four parallel Nominal group Technique Interviews undertaken with groups of professional (nurses from practice and academia) and lay stakeholder representatives during a seminar event. The group work sought to explore the mechanisms, which could facilitate meaningful practice development partnerships between nurses, academic nurses and people. The most highly ranked suggestions included creating a culture where practice development is seen as everyone's business and establishing a unified collaborative infrastructure. A range of enabling and inhibiting conditions were explored and the complexity of achieving consensus decision-making processes that would allow realization of the policy rhetoric was exposed.
