Research news from the IPNRC.
Although some may think more should have been added to the survey, it was the intent of the Working Group to design a survey that was brief but yet would provide sufficient data to describe the practice of parish nursing. Additional studies may follow.
The survey can be completed in less than 10 minutes. Any parish nurse who is actively practicing can take the survey and all are encouraged to do so. A notice of the survey will appear in IPNRC eNotes, a handout explaining the project will be available at the Westberg Symposium, and information with a link to the survey will be posted on the IPNRC website at www.parishnurses.org .
We do not know how many parish nurses there are nor what their practice looks like. This is the first study designed to obtain data from parish nurses nationally and internationally. Please spread the word to other parish nurses and parish nurse groups that you are associated with.
The survey can be accessed now. The letter addressing all the elements of informed consent is on the opening page of the survey. All responses are anonymous and confidential. Only aggregate data will be reported and findings will be shared. The link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx? sm=R9_2feQWRh9uyItUvZfyiJsw_3d_3d
Thank you to the members of the Working Group and to all those faculty on the Research Committee who have contributed hours to discussing and designing parish nursing research. If you have problems accessing the survey or have any questions, please contact Barbara Wehling firstname.lastname@example.org.
