The Truth About Nursing's founder and executive director, Sandy Summers, presented to meeting of the Strategic Research Alliance, in partnership with the Royal College of Nursing, held at the University of Sheffield. Nursing professors organized a consensus development project from 2018-2023 and are conducting "a new programme of research activity, supporting the development of nursing research evidence and nurse research capacity. Ultimately the work will seek to influence public policy and promote better outcomes for the population and the NHS (the UK's National Health Service) workforce."

In 2020 the Alliance is addressing five questions in UK nursing care, one of which is: "What are the best ways of informing and engaging the public about nursing?" Sandy Summers, RN, MSN, MPH, attended to present on this question and engage with a lay panel via Zoom on October 19, 2020 in Sheffield, England.
