MSU center for Research on Chronic Health Conditions in Rural Dwellers continues expansion.
CRCHC staff provides nurse investigators on-call writing assistance and consultation for all aspects of the research process, including choosing a research direction, grant writing, editing, and submission. The CRCHC Director, Dr. Clarann Weinert, mentors and consults with investigators on all aspects of their research. In addition to funding various pilot projects, the CRCHC also conducts collaborative research with other scientists and institutions throughout the country.
Under the direction of the Associate Director, Dr. Charlene Winters, the CRCHC investigators hold monthly teleconference meetings to discuss issues related to their projects and provide support, encouragement, and advice to one another. From their CRCHC funded projects, investigators submit at least one manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal for publication, a research proposal to obtain extramural funding, and present at a scientific conference. To date the CRCHC has funded eleven research projects involving 24 researchers from six states.
The CRCHC also plays a leading role in research education. Each month eminent scholars from across the nation are invited to present one-hour research seminars via a multi-line teleconference system. The teleconference allows students and scientists anywhere to connect with some of the best nursing research minds in the country. Grooming nurse researchers is also accomplished through the Western Writers Coercion Group, which holds bi-weekly teleconference meetings to help with writing via support, critique, mentoring, and scholarly exchange. Group members have submitted over 40 manuscripts for publication.
