Virtual Participation in the Upcoming INQRI Meeting

You are cordially invited to participate virtually in the sixth annual meeting of the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI) program July 13-14, 2011.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's INQRI program funds research that examines the linkages between nursing and the quality of patient care. At this year's annual meeting, guests will have the opportunity to meet our newest group of grantees, who are studying efforts to implement and spread evidence-based interventions in which nurses play a central role and that have been shown to improve the quality of patient care. In addition, several of our "graduating" grantees will present their findings. These researchers are addressing the value of nursing in achieving efficient, high quality patient care.

As in years past, we are inviting those who cannot attend the meeting to "follow" us via the INQRI blog and on Twitter, using hashtag #INQRI2011.

This year, however, we will feature a new aspect to those joining us virtually. On July 13, grantees who are completing their work this year will present their findings. As they present live to our guests in Princeton, our blog will host a YouTube video of them presenting to you. Simply visit our blog from 11:15am-12:15pmET and then again from 1:30pm-3:00pmET. You can enter questions in our comments section and we will make sure that the researchers answer.

If you have any questions about the INQRI meeting, please contact Heather Kelley-Thompson at hkelley@nursing.upenn.edu.
