Research Proposal by Josee, Brooke & Brett

In Canada there was approximately 29,000 premature infants born every year (Canadian Premature Babies Foundation, n.d).  Infants who are born prior to their full gestational term are underdeveloped and often very ill (Obeidat, Bond, & Callister, 2009). The birth of a healthy child can bring extra stress to parents as they ponder their new roles … Continue reading Research Proposal by Josee, Brooke & Brett


Research is the groundwork for determining the effectiveness of patient care protocols and how to create new ones. Healthcare professionals require reliable and credible evidence to base these clinical and practice on (Holloway & Peart, 2018). A dissemination can be defined as conveying the purpose and findings of a research study into different platforms: Training … Continue reading Dissemination

The Morning Read: Volume IV

Planning for dissemination is crucial for the adaptation of clinical research to become referenced into clinical settings as evidence based practice (EBP) [Singleton, 2017]. Posing great relevance to pediatric practice settings, effective interventions must be utilized by practicing pediatric nurses that meet the needs of care for patients undergoing surgical procedures (Atyekin, Doru, & Kucukoglu, … Continue reading The Morning Read: Volume IV

As a result… Continue Reading →

Dissemination (LA #10)

Conducting research is merely the beginning of the process when it comes to improving practice by method of research (Lobiondo-Wood & Haber, 2013). Once the research is conducted, the findings are disseminated either by research reports within journals or scientific conferences (Lobiondo-Wood & Haber, 2013). Dissemination is a necessary component of a study, particularly those … Continue reading Dissemination (LA #10)

LA10: Dissemination

Dissemination is the process in which research findings are presented to the community through resources such as publications, conferences, and training programs (LoBiondo-Wood, Haber, Cameron, & Singh, 2018). This is significant because when new usable information is found, it will be rendered useless if the proper dissemination is not used and no one hears about … Continue reading LA10: Dissemination

Dissemination Component {Murphy Stewart}

                                                   Dissemination Component It takes approximately seventeen years for evidenced-based research to be adopted into clinical practice (Fritz, 2016). This can affect patient care as there may be a more efficient… Continue Reading →


Rigour refers to strictness in which a study is conducted in order for that study’s findings to be believed or trustworthy (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2013).  Essentially, it’s the rules that researchers adhere to in order to maintain integrity of their study.  Without riguor, a study’s findings can not be taken seriously.  This study applies riguor … Continue reading Rigour
