Framing and Disseminating Nursing Workforce Research for Policy

Product type: Keynote presentation to IRGNI, AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting, Seattle, WA, June 23, 2018.

Presenters: Erin Fraher, PhD


  • We’re facing ever expanding “know-do gap” between growing
    body of rigorous nursing workforce and scope of practice and payment policy
  • Getting research translated into actionable policy change requires:
    • –Documentation of key trends requiring policy action
    • Strategically and intentionally framing messages
    • Targeting messages outside academia and nursing to hospitals/health systems, physician professional associations (particularly FM!), state legislators, federal policy makers, educators, etc.
    • New forms of “engaged scholarship”
    • Patience because policy change is incremental
