AFN Journal Club - Virtual Meeting June 2020
Time & Location
About The Event
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE UPCOMING JOURNAL CLUB VIRTUAL MEETING!
Purpose: An outcomes-based emphasis in forensic nursing requires identifying and utilizing best available evidence in order to produce safe, quality, and effective patient care. This is accomplished by encouraging and supporting nurse driven research, utilizing existing forensic and legal research to integrate Evidence Based Practice (EBP), and establishing forensic nursing implications and education that will result in enhanced patient outcomes, patient and forensic nurse satisfaction, and safe and effective high quality forensic nursing care. While this can be a formidable task for many clinical nurses, the AFN Journal Club serves to review research studies and discuss their implications on evidence based clinical practice.
- Improve the critical literature review skills of forensic nurses from all disciplines.
- Stimulate ideas and best practices that can be used to develop AFN Position Statements.
- Improve clinical practice of the forensic nurse caring for patients at the bedside.
- Generate suggestions for future forensic nursing research.
Attendee Expectations: The AFN Journal Club will foster a spirit of inquiry, while supporting and educating forensic nurses from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. The Journal Club is an open forum for discussing forensic nursing issues in a friendly and professional environment. The attendees will read the selected articles and answer the questions on the critique prior to the Journal Club Virtual Meeting so that all will come together prepared to discuss content and its application.
