Title: Elevate Your Practice with Research: RTI Fellows and Faculty Share Their Experience Designing and Conducting Research


Time: Sunday, May 5, noon-1:55 pm


Location: Columbus AB (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)


Carrie’s study investigates hospital-based nurses’ behaviors and feeling surrounding online materials for patient and family education. The design is qualitative; with data gathered through in-depth, semi-structured, individual interviews with nurses. Questions investigate nurses’ awareness of various materials and satisfaction with content, as well as any personal and patient-, unit-, and hospital-level factors that may affect or complicate their decisions to use one source over others. This rich data can be used to inform later work, including generalizable quantitative survey studies; outreach and education to various stakeholders, including nurses, managers, and quality and safety administrators; and analysis of the effectiveness of online patient education materials.
