Special Call for Research Proposals: Early Mobilization or Alarm Fatigue

ARN and RNF are seeking proposals for research studies that focus on Early Mobilization or Alarm Fatigue. Both topics address important problems that may be experienced by populations with functional impairments, limitations, and disabilities. In addition to the impact on functional outcomes and quality of life of these populations, healthcare providers, caregivers, and family members may also directly or indirectly be affected by these issues. The overall purpose of this call is to investigate health concerns that are amenable to rehabilitation nursing care and that, through the conduction of robust research, provide evidence for practice.
