Author information

Department of Nursing Studies, King's College, University of London, U.K.


This paper reviews evaluative studies on the role of clinical nurse specialists and aims to describe and categorise research according to the methods used. By using the structure, process and outcome framework a clear pattern of research development and evidence emerges. It appears that significant benefits accrue for patients from the contribution of nurse specialists, but more experimental studies with combined methods should now be applied to this area.
