Webinar Title:

Using Bio-behavioral and Genomic Methodologies for Improving Health Equity in
Nursing Science and Practice


Webinar Description
:

This symposium will provide a broad overview of theoretical and methodological perspectives to improve health equity in nursing science and practice using bio- behavioral and genomic approaches. Application of the National Institutes of Health Symptom Science Model (NIH-SSM) guides each bio behavioral symptom science research program and will be explained within the context of improving health equity.

Innovative biobehavioral methods for improving health equity will be highlighted including genomic analysis of phenotypes with discordant health outcomes, developing patient-centered technology for delivery of interventions and conducting data collection to improve representation of individuals with health disparities.


Objectives:

  1. Describe the application of the Symptom Science Model in bio-behavioral and genomic study designs and testing of patient-centered interventions and data collection to improve health equity.
  2. Examine approaches in which omic-based methods can inform the underlying mechanisms of symptoms in individuals and families with and without health disparities and targets for further intervention.
  3. Explain the application of patient-centered methods to develop technologies that support personalized health care and improve health equity.

Webinar Title:

Criminal Justice Violence Trauma (CJVT) RIG Symposium: Enhancing Health Equity for Criminal Justice-Involved Populations: Theoretical, Methodological, and Practice Perspectives 


Webinar Description
:

The purpose of this symposium is to illustrate examples of nurse researchers’ theoretical, methodological, and practice contributions to nursing science within the restricted CJ health care system and subsequently to foster health equity via policy and practice initiatives for marginalized CJ-involved populations.


Objectives:

  1. Expose and explore theoretical, methodological, and practice issues contributing to the health inequity experienced by individuals receiving health care within CJ settings.
  2. Propose theoretical, policy and practice related solutions for reducing health inequity in this population through education of health care professionals and reducing obstacles to health such as stigmatization, constraints to self-care, and exclusion from research.
  3. Discuss strategies for overcoming barriers and optimizing opportunities to provide evidenced based care and conduct research in CJ settings.

Opportunity and Uncertainty: Where Science, Policy, and Politics Intersect


Presenter: Suzanne Miyamoto, PhD, RN, FAAN, CEO, American Academy of Nursing

Webinar Description
:

It is clear that policy, politics, and science are interconnected. At the same time, that link can be difficult to navigate. As the country battles the coronavirus pandemic, messaging and framing impact the public’s opinion and policy actions. Combatting misinformation and reinforcing evidence is a vital role for researchers. Even when uncertainty is prevalent and the answers are still forthcoming, the forward momentum of the research community is paramount. From future federal investments to crafting policy grounded in research, there is a necessary balance to promote an agenda that advances meaningful change in health outcomes. For the work of nurse scientists in this process, it requires the consistent lens of the profession — a connection to the public, their health, and wellness.

Webinar Description:
What do all the letters in LGBTQ+ stand for? How many people are we talking about? My research has nothing to do with sexual or gender identity- why should I ask my participants? What question(s) can I use to collect sexual orientation and gender identity data? We’ll answer these questions and yours in this interactive webinar. Nurse scientists can make a substantial contribution to the state of the science on LGBTQ+ populations health and health disparities by routinely collecting sexual orientation and gender identity data in research. In turn, this new knowledge will improve the ability of nurses and other healthcare professionals to deliver evidence-based, patient-centered care to these marginalized populations.
