CCNR: The Colorado Collaborative for Nursing Research
CCNR: Statement of Purpose By (a) linking Colorado nursing-care providers and Colorado nurse researchers and (b) providing material/logistical research support for nursing- research projects, the CCNR generates research for translation into evidence-based practice, contributing to world-class health care for Colorado and beyond.
CCNR: Context (a) Improvement of patient safety/patient care tops IOM priority list (2009) (b) Tremendous interest/demand from health-care providers (c) Translation is key to (a) and (b)—more EBP requires more E on which to B the P
CCNR: Functions (Schematic on subsequent slide) (a) Co-operative research (b) Colorado Nursing Data Warehouse (c) Support services
CCNR CCNR Function (a): Co-Operative Research CCNR Function (c): Support Services Health-Care Professionals + Research Faculty Mutual Interests/Goals Impactful Research Ideas Framed in Sound Research Designs StatsEBPDesignQI Research Expertise and Capacity to Meet Research Goal or Need Excellent Scholarship State-of-the-Art, Evidence-Based Practice Superior Health Care for Colorado and Region SUPERIOR HEALTH FOR COLORADO AND REGION Data Management Conceptual Modeling Program Evaluation Missing Data Methods CCNR Function (b): Colorado Nursing Data Warehouse
CCNR: College of Nursing Research Personnel (a)Consultative Support Personnel (b)Statistical Support Personnel (c)Methodological Support Personnel
Consultative Support Personnel Karen Sousa, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor, Associate Dean of Research and Scholarship Expertise in developing/testing conceptual models Expertise in developing/applying advanced statistical methods (e.g., structural equation modeling) Expertise in research infrastructure, grant development, EBP projects, mentoring Linda Flynn, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor, Director—PhD Program 10+ years of continuous external funding for research Principal investigator of interdisciplinary teams for large, multi-site, patient safety studies (14 hospitals; 82 medical/surgical units; 63 nursing homes) Research focuses on impact of system, staff characteristics, and care practices in patient safety outcomes
Statistical Support Personnel Oliwier Dziadkowiec, PhD, Director of the Center for Nursing Research Statistical collaboration, public health/nursing research projects, with expertise in Inferential and non-parametric statistics (e.g., ANOVA, regression, mixed models, t-test, chi-square) Systems science (Social Network Analysis, System Dynamics Modeling) Program evaluation (process and outcome) and quality improvement Sarah Schmiege, PhD, Statistician, Assistant Research Professor Statistical collaboration, health-promotion research, with expertise in Structural equation modeling (SEM), including exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis Evaluating data from randomized controlled trials, including data complexities (e.g., missing data, fidelity/adherence problems, longitudinal data collection/analysis) Hierarchical modeling of clustered data, longitudinal growth curve modeling, latent variable mixture modeling
Methodological Support Personnel Paul Cook, PhD Expertise in randomized controlled trials, multilevel modeling, program evaluation, and quality improvement Research focuses clinical psychology/psychotherapy background on problems in health-behavior change (e.g., medication adherence, self-management of chronic diseases, HIV prevention, pediatric obesity prevention) Scott Harpin, PhD, MPH, RN Expertise in missing-data methods, secondary-data analysis, research using Stata software Research focuses on health care for at-risk populations (urban youth population) Jacqueline Jones, PhD, BN, RN, FRCNA Expertise in qualitative and mixed methods research Research focuses on systems of surveillance and outcomes for older adults, team and systems science Ellyn Matthews, PhD, RN, AOCN, CRNI Expertise in quantitative/qualitative research design and methods Research focuses on understanding symptom physiology and improving symptom management in cancer patients, sleep-wake disturbance assessment and management in chronic illness, adherence to behavioral therapies and lifestyle interventions
Methodological Support Personnel, Continued Paula Meek, PhD, RN Expertise in advanced statistics, qualitative research design and methods, psychometrics, outcomes research, clinical/translational research Research focuses on symptom physiologic, appraisal, and management in chronic illness Joan Nelson, DNP, RN Expertise in quality improvement and evidence-based practice Research focuses on geriatrics/population management Joyce Verran, PhD, RN, FAAN 25+ years of funded research in the areas of (a) nursing care-delivery systems (including acute-care work environments), (b) complexity of care in ambulatory settings, and (c) nursing-practice models in rural communities Current research focuses on effects of contextual factors on patient health- status outcomes across the care continuum
