Category: Webinars


Please join us for this virtual event hosted by Abramson Family Center for Nursing Excellence at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on February 22, 2023 starting at 12:00 PM EST.

The Delphi Methodology is a structured approach to obtaining consensus from a panel of experts on a particular topic, and is most commonly applied when little evidence on that topic exists. The Delphi method has become widely used in nursing research, and results from Delphi studies have informed early instrument design, interventions for new or rare conditions, among other things. Given the range of applications of this methodology, careful attention to study design is critical. For example, who can qualify as an expert? How is consensus defined? What are some threats to validity? How many rounds should be conducted? This presentation will provide an overview of the Delphi method, review foundational applications of this method in nursing science, and highlight examples of how the Delphi Method was used by nurses as foundational phases to multi-phase studies in progress at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
