The previous videos feature the best evidence and research needs relating to sex-based differences in cardiac surgical care, pain management strategies, surgical site infection, patient reported outcomes, and strategies to support nursing and allied professional research in practice. This video describes the aims and ambitions of CONNECT and CONNECT’s role in undertaking cardiac surgery research to develop to the current evidence base, supporting nursing and allied professional research development and clinical academic and scientist roles in practice, and sharing and disseminating the best available evidence and its use in practice.

CONNECT aims to create a global community of nursing and allied professional cardiac surgery researchers, foster and support international cardiac surgery research, and address global cardiac surgery challenges. Currently, with members from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, and the UK, CONNECT has been successful in promoting the organization around the world, establishing collaborative work, and supporting international scholarly visits and mentorships. In addition to CTSNet, CONNECT has collaborated with a number of national and international organizations—CCCN, SCTS, ESC ACNAP—and aims to influence and support evidence-based practice and policy development globally.
