Beatrice Renfield Lecture 2013 – Research and Innovations in Nursing and Health Care

Speaker:

Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, Rudin Professor Nursing, Co-Director, Center for Health, Media & Policy, Hunter College, City University of New York

Description:

The U.S. is faced with the challenge of improving the health of the population and the quality of health care, while reducing costs. Nurses are poised to help the nation in its quest to meet these aims and, historically, have been innovators in health care. The American Academy of Nursing’s Raise the Voice Campaign has sought to highlight contemporary nurses’ innovations. An analysis of the work of these “Edge Runners” reveals that there are common themes across nurse-led innovations, including a focus on the goals of the individual, family or community of interest.

Furthermore, research can provide the foundation for the innovation or be a necessary condition of spreading a successful model of care or intervention. Yet challenges in conducting such research persist and include issues of design, the innovators’ preparation in research, funding, and ethics. Diana J. Mason, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, a national leader in nursing, health policy and media, will address these issues, focusing on current and future research on nurse-led innovations in health care.

The Beatrice Renfield Lectureship in Research Nursing 2012 – Past, Present, and Future of Clinical Research Nursing

Speaker:

Clare Hastings, PhD, RN, FAAN, Chief for Nursing and Patient Care Services, NIH Clinical Center

Session Goals:

Nurses play an important role as members of the multidisciplinary research team; they help to address challenges associated with translating basic research (from the bench) to clinical practice (at the bedside). Although nurses have always been involved in direct care of human subjects, the role of nurses in research required further clarification. The presenter will provide an historical overview of clinical research nursing and describe a recent role delineation study which helped define Clinical Research Nursing Practice. A five dimensional model of Clinical Research Nursing Practice which includes: (1) Clinical Practice, (2) Study Management, (3) Care Coordination and Continuity, (4) Contributing to Science, and (5) Human Subjects Protection will be discussed. Future research for Clinical Research Nursing (CRN) as a specialty within nursing practice will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify the role of the nurse as an important member of the multidisciplinary clinical research team
2. Identify an historical nursing figure who participated in clinical research nursing
3. Describe the difference between Clinical Research Nursing and Research Nurse Coordinators
4. Identify five dimensions of Clinical Research Nursing Practice including: (1) Clinical Practice, (2) Study Management, (3) Care Coordination and Continuity, (4) Contributing to Science, and (5) Human Subjects Protection
5. Discuss the role of Clinical Research Nurses in ongoing informed consent and ensuring the integrity of data collection
