Sharing Results

Congratulations on achieving this milestone in your research endeavor – completion of data collection and analysis!  You have acquired new knowledge that not only deserves to be shared with other professionals but also needs to be disseminated in order for it to impact practice. Sharing or disseminating your research results is an integral part of the research process.  Findings can be shared in many ways ranging from presentations at local, state or national conferences to journal publication.

Annually, Catawba Valley Medical Center’s Research & Evidence-Based Practice Council sponsors a week to share new knowledge, celebrate research accomplishments, and learn about research studies and EBP projects in the organization. This is also an opportunity for nursing students to share the results of their practicum quality improvement projects. For additional information, email ebp@cvmc.us.

Some of the many professional organizations and venues, at the state and national level, by which results can be shared through conferences and symposiums are listed below. Abstract deadlines vary.
