Washington Regional Nursing Research Consortium (WRNRC) Educational Offering

Presented at the
National Institutes of Health, Clinical Center
Nursing Department
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
From 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Much of the nurse staffing research conducted over the last 20 years focused mainly on large database analyses using hospital-level data, with less of a focus on unit-level context and patient-level demand for care. In this presentation, the participant will hear the story of one researcher's journey from asking a clinical question at the bedside to conducting outcomes research on patient acuity, nurse assignment decisions, and quality and patient safety in oncology and palliative care populations.

"Linking data and research to the bedside: Perspectives on patient acuity and nurse staffing"

Presented by

Caitlin W. Brennan, PhD, APRN
Program Director for Outcomes Management
Research and Practice Development Section
Nursing Department, National Institutes of Health Clinical Center
