Boston Children's is dedicated to advancing the science of pediatric nursing. The hospital recognizes that a robust program of nursing research is essential to the provision of the highest quality patient care and the overall advancement of nursing as a profession.
The Program for Clinical Inquiry provides the leadership and resources necessary to ensure that care delivery is evidence-based, data driven and systematically evaluated.
Within this program, Nurses are provided with the following:
Evidence Based Practice
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a problem solving approach to clinical based practice that integrates conscientious use of best evidence in combination with a clinician's expertise as well as patient preferences and values (Melnyk)
Nursing Science Fellowship
The Nursing Science Fellowship provides a structured program of clinical inquiry and scholarship to advance nursing science. During this two-year program, fellows are paired with a nurse science mentor where they collaborate with other nurse scientists, administrative leaders, and staff engaged in clinical inquiry to create and complete a scholarly project that contributes to the science of pediatric nursing. Once completed, the work is then internally and externally disseminated through meetings and publications.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
