The mission of the National Nursing Research Roundtable (NNRR) is to serve the public's health through a strong research-based nursing practice. To this end, the purpose of the meeting is to bring together individuals representing member organizations - nurse scientists, practitioners, and educators - to discuss and disseminate nursing research findings to strengthen nursing practice and improve client outcomes. For practice to benefit from nursing research, findings must be disseminated to, and utilized by practitioners and educators. During this one-day meeting NNRR members will:
- Share information on how employing state-of-the-art biobehavioral approaches in symptom science research through inter- and intra-professional collaborations is vital for making an impact on the health of the nation
- Identify the research, education and practice implications of promoting inter- and intra-professional collaborations to promote state-of-the-art biobehavioral approaches in symptom science research
- Develop strategies constituent organizations might implement through education, practice and policy to promote inter- and intra-professional collaborations to promote state-of-the-art biobehavioral approaches in symptom science research
- Provide a unique opportunity to share and exchange information among the leaders of nursing organizations with a strong research focus.
