- Research in progress
A classic example of an entry in this section would be the research team that is looking for evidence, and wants to search the so-called "grey literature"; research that is being conducted, and hasn't been reported in any of the usual dissemination channels.

- Finding the evidence
"Standing on the shoulders of giants" is a phrase well known to researchers, and anyone embarking on a piece of research will want to know what has already been done. This section of the website provides a signposting service to various databases of completed research, including the recently launched NHS Evidence portal.

- Practice development
The utilisation of research is perhaps the most important part of the R&D process for nurses endeavouring to deliver evidence based practice. This field signposts visitors to organisations and databases which support knowledge utilisation. This section will also include information about user involvement, an area of growing importance in the research endeavour.
