NURA 889. Introduction to Theory, Research Methods and Evidence-Based Practice. 3 Hours.

Methods of theory development and analysis provide the foundation for the study of concepts and theories from nursing, anesthesiology and related scientific disciplines. Historical, scientific and philosophical frameworks relevant to the theoretical basis of nurse anesthesia are explored. The fundamentals of research methodology are examined including elements of design, measurement, statistical analysis and dissemination. The relationships between research, theory and practice are developed to create an awareness of how "best practice" resources support professional growth, competence and quality. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor. LEC.
