Innovation in Nursing
As a member of our nursing staff, you’ll have many opportunities to be immersed in the latest innovations and research.
Nurses and researchers enrich our capacity for clinical inquiry in Patient Care Services through:
The Nursing Research Fellowship Program - Clinical nurses are co-investigators for research studies.
Annual Clinical Excellence Poster Presentation Event co-hosted by the Professional Development and Education Council - An opportunity for our staff to showcase evidence-based practice, performance improvement and research.
Wentworth-Douglass Nurse Researchers - Mentor colleagues in RN-to-BSN, MSN and DNP programs to complete capstone clinical inquiry projects.
Current Nursing Studies
Wentworth-Douglass Health Coach/Survivorship Study
The purpose of this study is to initiate and evaluate health coach services for cancer survivors, delivered in an eight- to 12- week coaching intervention. Provided at no cost, these services are intended to supplement traditional support currently offered by Wentworth-Douglass.
Our target population is Seacoast Cancer Center patients, who are nearly finished, or have recently completed, treatment for cancer - an ideal time for advocating and promoting healthy lifestyle behaviors. We are using the Patient Activation Measure (PAM® Survey) and Quality of Life Index© to evaluate outcomes.
Qualitative Description of the Clinical Staff Members’ Experience at a Community Hospital During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The purpose of this study is to describe and understand the experience of our clinical staff members to develop a comprehensive description of the experience and identify opportunities for organizational support that will foster their well-being. Ultimately, a healthier work environment supports high quality care of our patients and families.
We are interviewing clinical staff who have cared for patients with COVID-19. The primary investigators include two staff nurses who were selected to participate in our first Wentworth-Douglass Nurse Research Fellowship.
