Thursday, September 26 at 12:00 p.m., CT
Presented by Dr. Jessica Coburn and Dr. Dana O’Brien

To meet the needs of a rapidly changing health care landscape nursing education is transitioning to competency-based education. Competency-based education prioritizes practice-ready graduates and emphasizes development and assessment of clinical judgement across health care settings and populations. It also draws on and strengthens the partnership between the School of Nursing and our clinical partners.

Wednesday, October 9 at 11:00 a.m., CT (pre-recorded session)
Presented by Dr. Kristine Kwekkeboom, Dr. Megan Miller, Dr. Kitty Montgomery, and Dr. Kristen Pecanac

Symptom science and palliative care research includes developing and testing interventions aimed at improving patient quality of life, facilitating patient-provider communication and decision-making, and goal-concordant care at the end of life. In this talk, four School of Nursing faculty will discuss research opportunities and challenges in reducing patient suffering in the context of acute and chronic life-threatening illness.

Friday, October 25 at 12:00 p.m., CT
Presented by Ms. Gina Green-Harris, Dr. Barb King, Dr. Susan Passmore, and Dr. Kat Phelps

Community-engaged research is critical in our work to reduce health inequities. Working side by side with community members strengthens the relevance and effectiveness of health studies. Such partnerships complement scientific skills with the invaluable wisdom, experience, and perspectives of those who bear a disproportionate burden of ill health.
