Global Health - Visiting Scholars
The College of Nursing’s Visiting Scholar Program offers unique opportunities for select scholars. Students and faculty interact closely with the scholars through their research in an attempt to analyze and understand the complex and shifting health care landscape.
Dr. Jeremy (Jed) Duff from the University of Newcastle, School of Nursing & Midwifery in Callaghan, Australia, will be working with Dr. Victoria Steelman using the Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Method (REAM) to collect, analyze and synthesis qualitative data to help identify the barriers to evidence use in perioperative nursing.
Site visits will be conducted at hospitals and health services using the Iowa Model for Evidenced-based practice. His faculty sponsor, Dr. Steelman, is a fellow perioperative nurse and implementation researcher he met while they both served on board of the International Federation of Perioperative Nurses. This study will also contribute to the field of implementations science.
Vanessa M. Mantovani, a PhD student from the Graduate Program in Nursing Science at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil has completed all proposed activities during her appointment with the Center for Nursing Classification and Clinical Effectiveness at the College of Nursing. She worked closely with staff and faculty during her appointment from September 14, 2018 to February 22, 2019. She focused primarily on her dissertation with guidance from her faculty mentor in Brazil and Dr. Sue Moorhead during this visit. She conducted a concept analysis focused on adverse reactions to medications and developed a new risk nursing diagnosis for this concept. She submitted a manuscript she completed during her time at Iowa to a journal for review and publication. In addition she worked on a linkage project focused on nutrition that included NANDA International nursing diagnoses, nursing interventions from the Nursing Interventions Classification and nursing outcomes from the Nursing Outcomes Classification.
