2016 Conference Theme + Objectives
This year’s theme is “Nursing Science: Bridging Research and Health.”
Nurses are engaged in innovative and diverse research endeavors aimed at improving health and quality of life for diverse populations locally and globally. Promoting the translation of nursing science to clinical practice and enhancing the impact of nursing science on health policy are important considerations regardless of research focus. In the 28th Annual Scientific Sessions, we will celebrate how nursing science bridges the world of knowledge development and evidence-based practice toward health in individuals, families, and communities. We invite submissions of original research that are congruent with this theme.
- Describe nurse scientists’ contributions in discovery and dissemination of solutions to promote health science
- Propose strategies to connect healthcare and science in advancing quality of care for individuals, families, and communities
- Examine programs of research in which a nursing perspective is central to bridging gaps in knowledge development
- Explore theoretical and methodological perspectives of science as a collegial integration to promote health
