Annual Conference Speaker Stresses the Importance of Sharing Research Regionally

Mary E. Kerr, PhD, RN, FAAN, the new dean of the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve and the inaugural holder of the May L. Wykle Endowed Professorship in Nursing, presented avenues for nursing involvement in evidence-based practice and research, as well as strategies for clinical settings to more than 65 attendees at NEONI's 10th Annual Fall Conference, entitled Becoming Involved in Evidence-Based Practice and Research, on Oct. 28.

During the conference, Kerr stressed the importance of sharing research as a region. She explained the process of effectively pursuing grants for nursing research and emphasized the importance of an inter-professional approach, meaning the inclusion of other healthcare professionals in the research process.

Dr. Kerr also facilitated a panel of Northeast Ohio nurse researchers from academia and practice. The discussion was around how their involvement in research activities would result in improved patient care.
