We believe diverse perspectives, strengths, and resources lead to innovations with greater potential for impact. We partner and collaborate with health systems and the community to research new and better ways to deliver health care, improve nursing education, prepare health professions teams for the complexities of our current and future health care system, and improve the quality of life for residents of Wisconsin and beyond.
Aging and Elder Care
CARE connects stakeholders and creates products, trainings, and other solutions. Its innovations include Geri-Res, which helps long-term care facilities train newer nurses and reduce costly turnover, and eCARE, a smartphone app for caregivers.
Involving Underserved Populations in Research
The Wisconsin Network for Research Support (WINRS) promotes meaningful patient and community engagement. Its CARDS® program connects researchers with community members to help reach underrepresented communities.
Interprofessional Continuing Education
The Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP) creates and provides educational experiences that encourage the sharing of expertise across roles and promote the success of healthcare professionals within team-based delivery systems.
Pediatric & School Nursing
eSchoolCare is an online tool connecting school nurses with university and hospital expertise; SHARP helps schools harness the power of social networks in support of children's asthma management. Collaboration fosters these and future innovations.
Partnering Across Boundaries for Better Research
The School of Nursing partners to encourage researchers to collaborate, share information and best practices, and connect research with nursing practice.
