Oct 3 2007 Nursing Research Council KEY POINTS

We will now post a "key points" summary of each of our monthly Nursing Research Councils:

October 3, 2007 Nursing Research Council – KEY POINTS

The Research Reflection prompted the Council to discuss a possible new project for blood pressure screening in the ED.

There are now two RN members of the IRB Committee and nursing projects are beginning to receive expedited reviews.

There were reports on the progress of all ongoing projects.

Education was provided on EBP nursing competencies. Dana Rutledge and Vickie Morrison will incorporate these competencies into next year’s EBP classes.

Eleanor Jamieson, Carmen Ferrell and Dana Rutledge have an article accepted for publication in Med Surg Nursing. The topic is outcomes from the MET Team.

The Nursing Research Blog Committee will meet in December for an update and additional training.

The Council will continue to invite new members and talk about EBP on their units.

There will be a special EBP presentation at Nursing Grand Rounds on November 19. Breakfast will be served.
