Russell K. Portenoy, MD
Chief Medical Officer, MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care
Executive Director, MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care
Professor of Neurology and Family and Social Medicine
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Purpose: The goal of this webinar is to improve the clinician's knowledge of research practices to enhance the ability to participate in research and critically evaluate the research literature in palliative care. It will provide clinicians with a foundation for understanding the definitions and types of research studies and key aspects of their conduct.
Why Do I Need to Know This? Research creates knowledge, and in the clinical arena, expanding knowledge ultimately is translated into evidence-based practice. The evidence base underlying the principles of palliative care is limited. Clinicians involved in palliative care can benefit from a working knowledge of research, including types of studies, study design, and methodologies. This information encourages participation in the research enterprise and an appreciation for the level of evidence used in evidence-based guidelines. It also provides tools for critical evaluation of the research literature.
- Discuss the types of research and their contributions to new knowledge
- Be able to evaluate the quality of evidence by assessing the quality of research
- Improve the ability to critically evaluate the research literature
Target Audience: Primary care providers, nurse practitioners, palliative care specialists, pain specialists, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses with a specialty in palliative care/hospice, social workers, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students
Criteria for Successful Completion:
- Attendance at entire session
- Submission of completed evaluation form
- Successful completion of a posttest; 80% passing grade (mandatory to receive CE credit for social workers)
