2022 National Nursing Research Roundtable

March 03, 2022 - March 04, 2022

Virtual Event

2022 National Nursing Research Roundtable

Join the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) and the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) on March 3-4 for the 2022 National Nursing Research Roundtable (NNRR).

The virtual meeting, “From Context to Care: Understanding the Convergence of Social Factors and Emergency Department Care,” will bring together individuals representing nursing organizations — spanning science, education, and practice — to discuss and disseminate research findings relevant to nursing science and practice to improve client outcomes. For practice to benefit from research, findings must be disseminated to, and used by, practitioners and educators.

During this two-day meeting NNRR participants will:

  • Learn how emergency departments can appropriately identify and address social needs
  • Understand the role of social problems and risk in creating demand for emergency healthcare services
  • Identify factors that influence the success of transitions from emergency department care to community-based care
  • Provide a unique opportunity to share and exchange information among the leaders of nursing organizations with a strong research focus
