3254.0 Public Health Nursing Research Priorities

Monday, November 9, 2009: 12:30 PM
Sound and rigorous research studies are needed to inform public health nursing practice in a variety of settings and serve as the foundation for effective programs and health policies. The National Association of School Nurses, the Association of Community Health Nurse Educators, and the Public Health Nursing Section of APHA are three organizations that represent public health nurses. These organizations developed priorities for nurse researchers who aim to generate new empirical knowledge and examine the evidence for effective public health nursing programs and strategies. This session explains the processes used by the organizations to establish their most current research priorities and presents the priorities for lines of inquiry and methods.
Session Objectives: 1. List three entities that have developed research priorities to guide public health nurse researchers, educators, and practitioners. 2. Describe two priorities for research topics and methods in the field of school and public health nursing. 3. Compare two differences and commonalities among the research priorities from three organizations that represent public health nurses.
