5097.0 Theoretical/Methodological issues in population-focused nursing research

Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
This session will explore theoretical and methodological issues in population-focused nursing as it relates to the assessment of individual and community needs. The studies presented examine the development of gender and regional specific measures for HIV prevention interventions, examine the nuances among three rural coding schemas, and examine associations between the presence of broken windows and the rate of recruitment in a pilot for the National Children's Study.
Session Objectives: After this session, the participants will be able to describe the Artinian Intersystem Model as a new tool for the public health nurse for guiding delivery of care to the community-as-client, analyze research and policy implications of alternative coding schemas for nursing, to describe the psychometric validation methods of HIV-related scales for use with rural African-American men, and analyze the value of using the presence of broken windows as an indicator of neighborhood health.
