Description:
Nurse educators demonstrate how family nursing care concepts are engrained within an undergraduate nursing curriculum. Family simulation scenarios are embedded throughout courses sequentially to examine family health experiences throughout the lifespan and in various care settings. Simulations and family electronic health records (EHRs) are effective tools to teach students assessment skills necessary for family care.  The EHR includes a genogram and ecomap that provides students and educators with a visual image capturing family data. Participants will receive a ‘hands-on’ experience using the family EHR on supplied iPads and learn how to use family scenarios to enhance their teaching.

Planning Family Systems Nursing Knowledge Translation Research Projects. Where to Start? (Practice / Research)

Presenters:
Fabie Duhamel, RN, PhD, University of Montreal
France Dupuis, RN, PhD, University of Montreal

Description:
While there is continuous progression in family nursing knowledge, little is known about how to best implement this knowledge into clinical practice. Numerous factors contribute to the challenging gap between theory and practice and there is an urgent need for more research about how to move family nursing knowledge into action. This workshop presents a brief overview of Knowledge To Action models including a knowledge translation one that philosophically fits with Family Systems Nursing. Participants will take part in discussions and small group exercises to learn about planning knowledge « translation » research projects to promote Family Systems Nursing practice.

Conceptual and Methodological Issues in End-of Life Family Research (Research)

Suzanne Feetham, PhD, RN, FAAN
, Children’s National Health System / University of Illinois at Chicago
Pamela S. Hinds, PhD, RN, FAAN, George Washington University / University of Maryland
Debra Wiegand, PhD, MBE, RN, CCRN, CHPN, FAHA, FAA, University of Maryland

Description:
This preconference is designed to assist researchers conducting end-of-life research with families. One of the most painful processes that a family can endure is the death of another family member. Improving our ability to prevent and diminish suffering is dependent on the completion of high quality, end-of-life studies. In this workshop, we will provide an overview and practical examples of approaches to use when conducting pediatric and adult end-of-life research. We will discuss strategies that work when conducting end-of-life research with these vulnerable families. These sensitive investigations are needed for evidence-based care to families of the dying.

Illness Suffering and Family Healing: Raising Your Clinical Effectiveness to the Next Level (Practice)

Presenter:
Janice M. Bell, RN, PhD, University of Calgary
Lorraine M. Wright, RN, PhD,
University of Calgary

Description:
An unprecedented opportunity will be provided in this workshop to view a live family interview conducted by Dr Lorraine Wright with Dr Janice Bell providing commentary about the interview and leading the reflecting team discussion. If at the last moment, a live family interview is not possible, a previously videotaped therapeutic conversation between Dr Lorraine Wright and a family suffering with illness will be presented on videotape. Dr Bell and Dr Wright will offer an analysis and rationale for why the experienced clinician said-what-she-said and did-what-she-did to refine and enhance family nursing intervention knowledge. This clinical demonstration workshop will provide experiential and practical knowledge about advanced family nursing practice, informed by the Illness Beliefs Model (Wright & Bell, 2009). Reflections about possibilities for family nursing practice, education, and research will be invited for either the live interview or videotaped family interview.

Jyu-Lin Chen, University of California San Francisco
Kit Chesla, University of California San Francisco
Roberta Rehm, University of California San Francisco

Description:
To provide novice researchers theoretical, methodological, and practical information in using mixed methods to conduct research with individuals and families from diverse populations. Experts in interpretive/qualitative research (Rehm, Chesla) and quantitative research (Chen) offer lessons learned from the conduct of mixed methods research with families. Participants can work on their own research questions or use sample research questions provided by workshop facilitators to practice mixed methods designs. Opportunity is provided to apply content from the workshop to a proposal using mixed methods research in diverse populations on a topic of workshop participants’ interest.
