Webinar Title:

Effective Project Management: Keys for Success

Webinar Description:

The ENRS Aging RIG invites you to “Effective Project Management: Keys for Success” presented on Wednesday, December 8th from 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST.

Essential project management skills are often not formally taught to nurse scientists; however, foundational knowledge can improve the rigor and success of a research study. The objective of this webinar is to provide ENRS members with background information and tips on effective project management skills.

Our esteemed speaker is Abraham Brody, PhD, RN, FAAN, Associate Professor of Nursing & Medicine and Associate Director of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University Meyers College of Nursing. In this presentation, Dr. Body will share his wealth of experience, present strategies for project management, including when working remotely, as well as tips for successful leadership and managing staff. Q&A session will follow Dr. Brody’s presentation with ample time for discussion.

This webinar is sponsored by the ENRS Aging RIG and intended to be applicable to the larger ENRS membership.

Addressing Pervasive Healthcare Challenges through Innovative Approaches to Health Equity in Resource-Limited Populations: Novel Methods, Interventions and Future Directions

Webinar Description:

The revolutionary power of nursing requires nurse scientists to appreciate the context in which our resource-limited populations are geographically and/or physically located while providing or receiving care. Such context allows for the development of new interventions to address pervasive, longstanding healthcare challenges affecting nurse clinicians and populations for which nurses provide care. The purpose of this symposium is to demonstrate the scholarly work of nurse scientists in developing innovative approaches, methods, and/or interventions to pervasive healthcare challenges affecting the health equity of four different patient populations and provided by resource-limited nurses in the acute care settings.

Objectives:

  1. Articulate the contemporary healthcare challenges affecting underserved or at risk patient populations who are in need of novel approaches to equitable care
  2. Describe the theoretical frameworks and methods taken within each study that led to new knowledge development in nursing science for these patients
  3. Discuss the implications of each study’s findings on the necessary research, practice and policy needed to intervene in these areas before such populations experience further unfavorable outcomes and/or nurses provide, potentially unnecessary healthcare costs.

Criminal Justice Violence Trauma (CJVT) RIG Symposium: Enhancing Health Equity for Criminal Justice-Involved Populations: Theoretical, Methodological, and Practice Perspectives 

Webinar Description:

The purpose of this symposium is to illustrate examples of nurse researchers’ theoretical, methodological, and practice contributions to nursing science within the restricted CJ health care system and subsequently to foster health equity via policy and practice initiatives for marginalized CJ-involved populations.

Objectives:

  1. Expose and explore theoretical, methodological, and practice issues contributing to the health inequity experienced by individuals receiving health care within CJ settings.
  2. Propose theoretical, policy and practice related solutions for reducing health inequity in this population through education of health care professionals and reducing obstacles to health such as stigmatization, constraints to self-care, and exclusion from research.
  3. Discuss strategies for overcoming barriers and optimizing opportunities to provide evidenced based care and conduct research in CJ settings.

[Almost] Everything You Need to Know, But Were Afraid to Ask About Research with LGBTQ+ Populations

Webinar Description:

What do all the letters in LGBTQ+ stand for? How many people are we talking about? My research has nothing to do with sexual or gender identity- why should I ask my participants? What question(s) can I use to collect sexual orientation and gender identity data? We’ll answer these questions and yours in this interactive webinar. Nurse scientists can make a substantial contribution to the state of the science on LGBTQ+ populations health and health disparities by routinely collecting sexual orientation and gender identity data in research. In turn, this new knowledge will improve the ability of nurses and other healthcare professionals to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care to these marginalized populations.

Opportunity and Uncertainty: Where Science, Policy, and Politics Intersect

Webinar Description:

It is clear that policy, politics, and science are interconnected. At the same time, that link can be difficult to navigate. As the country battles the coronavirus pandemic, messaging and framing impact the public’s opinion and policy actions. Combatting misinformation and reinforcing evidence is a vital role for researchers. Even when uncertainty is prevalent and the answers are still forthcoming, the forward momentum of the research community is paramount. From future federal investments to crafting policy grounded in research, there is a necessary balance to promote an agenda that advances meaningful change in health outcomes. For the work of nurse scientists in this process, it requires the consistent lens of the profession — a connection to the public, their health, and wellness.
