Engagement in Research though Scientific Conferences

Attendance at scientific conferences provides opportunities to interact with experts and colleagues, expand one’s scientific knowledge, develop ideas, and build collaborations. Taking full advantage of conferences requires a systematic approach to engaging in conference activities. This webinar will provide students with knowledge and skills to maximize benefit in scientific conference attendance. 

1. Describe opportunities for scientific discourse available at conferences.

2. Develop strategies to build, extend, and maintain networks of colleagues and mentors.

3. Identify approaches to interacting with conference activities of highest value to a specialized area of research.

Using Clinical Data to Address Quality Initiatives and Improve Patient Safety

To view the recording of this webinar please log-in to the member page

The potential for improving the quality of patient care through the use of existing data sets is limited only by the conceptualization of the problem and study, and the expertise of researchers to use existing data with complex research designs.  Traditionally, PhD students and nurse scientists learned research methods using primary data collection and analysis.  Through the development of secondary data sources and greater accessibility to these data for analysis, nurse scientists have the potential to gain a better understanding of patient phenomena, inform clinical processes, and improve the quality of patient care. 

Participants of this webinar will learn fundamental concepts and key steps needed to conduct research using secondary data: (1) define a research question; (2) select an appropriate dataset; (3) understand variable creation and build your analysis; and (4) present findings in a way that that informs healthcare policy and/or clinical practice.

There are no prerequisites for this webinar.  However, it is best suited for participants who:

  • Have graduate-level statistics and research design
  • Are currently managing or planning to manage large secondary data projects

Writing a Winning Abstract
August 7, 2019 
11:00 am - 12:00 pm ET
Abstracts of research papers are sometimes poorly written, often lack important information, and occasionally convey a biased picture. This webinar will provide detailed suggestions, with examples, for writing the background, methods, results, and conclusions sections of a good abstract. The primary target of this webinar is the student and early career researcher
; however, authors with all levels of experience may find useful ideas in this webinar.
