Research & Evidence Based Practice
Nursing research provides evidence to support nursing practice and augments delivery of high quality patient and family healthcare, as well as improves the work environment for our nurses and interprofessional team members. Mission Health nurses conduct nursing research studies and evidence-based practice projects and disseminate their results at local, regional, state and national conferences. Their work elevates the standard of care and enhances patient outcomes.
The Mission Health Nursing Evidence-based Practice and Research Council (NERC) Journal Club is a classroom, WebEx and Facebook learning opportunity for all interested nurses to read specific nursing articles and perform a systematic evaluation of the article. The Journal Club provides insight into the latest and best clinical research and findings and encourages nurses to participate in research studies.
Mission E-Nursing Journal
Throughout the year, Mission Health nurses present posters and podium lectures about their nursing research studies and evidence-based practice projects at local, regional, state and national conferences. Often their presentations earn awards. Included here are examples of the work they do to improve patient care.
