Because of Nursing Research: Helping Families COPE With Premature Births
Because of Nursing Research there is a program to help the parents of a premature infant learn about prematurity. As a result, they feel less stressed and anxious while their infant is in the hospital. This program empowers parents to be more involved in their infant's care, leading to better infant outcomes.
Because of Nursing Research: End-of-Life Care in the ICU
Because of nursing research, doctors and nurses taking care of a dying patient in an intensive care unit (ICU) can communicate better with family members. This communication includes taking the time to listen to concerns and answer questions. As a result, the family members may feel less stress and find it easier to take part in making decisions on care – even when the decision involves whether to continue or withdraw life support measures.
Because of Nursing Research: Supporting Technologies for Healthy Independent Living
Nursing research is developing new technologies to help older adults maintain their health as they age in place in their homes and communities, instead of moving to a nursing home as their health care needs change.
Drs. Patricia A. Grady, Ann Cashion and Lois A. Tully are among several co-authors of a manuscript that appears in the 2013 Genomics Special Issue of the Journal of Nursing Scholarship.
National Nursing Research Roundtable
The National Nursing Research Roundtable (NNRR) is an informal association of nursing organizations with a significant research interest that provides clinicians, scientists, educators, scholars, and policy leaders an opportunity to come together to discuss priorities important for both the science and practice of nursing.
