The Research in Nursing Care Group (NURECARE) was formally set up in early 2021 to provide support and increase the effectiveness of nursing care research across the services of the Germans Trias i Pujol University Hospital.

NURECARE works on projects from the planning phase to the science dissemination and popularization phases. The group’s objective is to promote excellence in nursing research and to increase the quantity and quality of formal studies conducted within the hospital in this field.

The group provides support at all levels, from ensuring proper planning, methodology selection, authorizations, and grants through to pilot studies, the adaption of forms, the creation of data bases, and ultimately, the production of reports or publication of studies. These studies include those initiated by the hospital and external promotors, with the majority being linked to doctoral theses, or masters' dissertations.

Two IGTP groups lead a European analysis to understand key factors for digitalisation in practice environments

The research groups in Nursing Care (NURECARE) and Innovation, Health Economics and Digital Transformation (INEDIT) from the IGTP are leading the publication of the first report on the key factors for introducing digital technologies in professional nursing practice environments. Through this effort, professionals from the Germans Trias Hospital are participating for the first time in the design of a comprehensive analysis of the required changes, while also offering recommendations to ensure the success of any initiative aimed at incorporating these technologies into hospitals.
