Not your data: Nursing paper retracted for misuse of findings
The journal Nurse Education Today has retracted a 2012 article, “Interprofessional learning in acute care: Developing a theoretical framework,” by a UK scholar because, how shall we put it, he might need a few lessons in interprofessionalism.
The retraction notice explains it neatly:
This article has been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief.
The data in this article was used without acknowledgement or approval by the research team.
The paper’s author was Robin Lewis, listed as a senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University. As his profile page states, he has several collaborations:
Since 2006, Robin has developed a number of collaborative relationships including research teams from University of Sheffield Medical School, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Foundation Trust. He is currently working on a joint project with the Y&H HIEC patient safety team based at Bradford Royal Infirmary to look at the use of simulation in the prevention of medication errors
We’re guessing some of those relationships might be a bit strained at the moment.
