Overview

Overview

This two-day research intensive nursing conference features more than 20 oral presentations, 60 poster presentations and a dozen research design, analysis, and dissemination workshops. The goal of this conference is to provide a forum for the dissemination of nursing research findings and to provide research workshops (beginner and advanced) to enhance the attendees knowledge of research methods. Individuals who attend this conference will be in a better position to identify new nursing research questions, test new interventions, and translate research findings into nursing interventions to improve patient outcomes. The conference will feature presentations by and for clinical and academic attendees, with time allotted between sessions for formal and informal networking. To enhance knowledge related to methodological issues, the conference will feature 6 workshops and two featured topic presented by content experts (statisticians, editors, writer, and scientists).

Conference Objectives:

  • Facilitate research collaboration and partnerships between clinicians at various organizations (clinical and academic).
  • Share results of clinical research studies that will foster a culture of inquiry and will lead to additional studies and implementation of new and innovative interventions.
  • Increase knowledge of methodological and dissemination issues specific to the conduct of clinical research that will enhance the attendees ability to develop and conduct high quality and rigorous studies that will impact both nursing practice and patient outcomes.
  • Discuss ways to engage clinical nurses in the research process by providing a culture of inquiry and sufficient resources to make nursing research a reality (Magnet Goal).
