The best clinical practice is grounded in evidence – evidence that is informed by the reality of practice and the organizational setting in which it is provided. Nursing home social workers who work with researchers to better understand the needs of their clients and organization, evaluate their current practices, and implement and evaluate new practices, are positioned to provide the best care.

This session will empower frontline social workers to implement best practices by learning how and why to be active participants in research that can benefit their clients and organization. Attendees will learn about:
  1. different types of research projects most relevant to their practice and the related research considerations; 
  2. the administrative issues involved when deciding whether to conduct a research project; and 
  3. “rubber-meets-the-road” realities related to engaging with residents, families, staff, and researchers when working to develop, implement, and evaluate best practices.
