Strong nursing research skills are key for everything from earning advanced degrees to serving on quality improvement councils. Explore tips and tricks for optimal health research outcomes from EBSCO Health Librarian, Ellen Westling.
When it comes to nursing and allied health, “research” can come in a variety of forms. Perhaps a nurse or allied health professional is going back to school for an advanced degree and needs to do research for a thesis paper. Or maybe a nurse is working on the policy and procedure creation and upkeep for their hospital and must refer to the latest clinical evidence to help construct their own policies. Often research is even performed by members of a hospital’s quality improvement council to guide and inform practice improvement initiatives across the hospital. Whatever the situation may be, there is no question that strong research skills are a must have for nurses and allied health professionals.
Recently, EBSCO Senior Engagement Manager and EBSCO Health Librarian Ellen Westling and EBSCO Health Clinical Solutions Executive Teresa Trammel presented the EBSCO Health Nursing and Allied Health Research Bootcamp. The webinar presentation offered attendees a deep dive into how to frame a strong research question prior to starting their research, advanced searching techniques through the lends of CINAHL®, and many other valuable tips and tricks to achieve optimal research outcomes.
