Participate: Survey on Evidence Based Practice Adoption

August 3, 2018

Research Survey Opportunity:  An Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved research study is designed to better understand the relationship of nurses' attributes that may influence their professional behaviors and the adoption of evidence-based practice. 
By taking this survey, respondents will provide information on the influencing factors related to why nurses do or do not choose to use evidence-based practice. Participation in this research is voluntary and confidential. Participants must be practicing RNs at any level and licensed in the United States. They are eligible to be entered into a lottery for one of two $100 Amazon gift cards. This project has been undertaken by a DNP student at Adelphi University. For more information, contact Cheryl Peterson at [email protected].

 Support the Addiction Treatment Access Improvement Act of 2018

July 23, 2018

Senator Claire McCaskill's (D-Mo) office on July 12 released a report finding that over the last six years, enough opioids were shipped into the state of Missouri to give every resident 260 pills. While that is a snapshot of just one state, combine that news with the latest report and alert from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that the number of overdose deaths involving fentanyl and similar drugs nearly doubled between the last half of 2016 and the first half of 2017, and it becomes clear that the opioid crisis is still destroying the lives of individuals, families, and communities in epic proportions.

Ask your senators to follow the House's example and support legislation that would grant and extend nurses the ability to prescribe life-saving treatment for opioid addiction.
