The sixth annual Translating Research to Innovations in Practice Symposium is being held on May 10-11 at The Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center.
The symposium will be highlighted by the keynote presentations “Delirium in Age – Friendly Care: Implementation of a 2-Step Delirium Detection and Management App,” delivered by Donna Fick, and “Implementing a New Standard for Sexual Assault Care” delivered by SSRI cofunded faculty member Sheridan Miyamoto. Other featured presentations include “Eudaimonia – A New State of Being” delivered by April Adley, vice president of nursing services at Penn State’s Children's Hospital and Women's Health.
A virtual poster session will also be presented for students, faculty and researchers to highlight their current work and to network with their peers. Poster awards will be presented in two categories, student posters and nonstudent posters.
Poster session topics will include person-centered care; quality of life during NCLEX-RN preparation; burnout strategies; MINDSTRONG/MINDBODYSTRONG; bubble CPAP implementation; nursing tales from the bedside; and end-of-life care.
Clinical nurses in all practice environments, nurse scientists and administrators, graduate level nursing students and all healthcare professionals are encouraged to attend.
The symposium, which is a collaborative effort between the Penn State Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing and the Department of Nursing at the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, brings together nurse researchers from both academic and clinical settings to focus on the translation of evidence to health care practices. The intended purpose is to include research that provides an understanding of what makes an organization successful in the use of evidence-based practice and to provide an opportunity for clinical nurses to network with and share their research with others.
Penn State Ross and Carol Nese College of Nursing is approved with distinction as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Projected for up to 8.0 contact hours for Registered Nurses.
