MARTINEZ TRUJILLO, Nelcy. Initiatives for Strengthening Research on Health Policies and Systems in Nursing. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.1, e2254.  Epub 01-Mar-2019. ISSN 0864-0319.


The particularities of research in health policies and systems have influenced the slow assumption as a generator of health system evidence. Therefore, initiatives are required that contribute to its development and consolidation.


To describe some variables for the development of research on health policies and systems in nursing.


A descriptive bibliographical review was carried out with scientific articles, annual reports and guiding documents of the alliance for research in health policies and systems in the period 2001-2015 in Spanish and English. The information was systematized and the scientific evidence obtained from the results of a national project carried out in Cuba between the years 2008-2012 was integrated.


The establishment of institutions that lead its implementation, the identification of professionals with experience in this type of study, the generation of synergy spaces for the work among researchers and decision-makers, the use of non-traditional ways for disseminating results, and the increase and prioritization of funding allocation are some of the general initiatives for the consolidation of this type of study. The identification and development of skills at different levels is part of the proposals described for nursing.


The identification of variables for the development of research in health policies and systems favors their consolidation in the different contexts where nursing professionals are inserted. Knowing them allows their use by this group of practice.
