Evidence-based Practice and Research Education
SGNA is striving to translate evidence into practice and provide training for nurses who will advance gastroenterology and endoscopy nursing through the development of evidence-based practice and research. The Scholars program looks to accomplish this goal.
SGNA Scholars Program
The purpose of the SGNA Scholars program is to educate and train appropriately prepared GI/endoscopy nurses in order to build a repository of evidence applicable to the GI/endoscopy setting. Scholars will receive in-person systematic review training utilizing the TCU Center for Evidence-based Practice and Research: A Collaborating Center of the Joanna Briggs Institute.
Scoping Review Overview – A scoping review is a comprehensive and up-to-date broad overview of the principal evidence about a topic of interest. The reviewer uses a systematic method to find evidence that answers a broad research question such as what is known and not known about a topic. Scoping reviews often lead to a systematic review that has a more focused research question and where the quality of the available evidence is then assessed.
The application window for the Scholars Class of 2019 is closed. Applications for the Scholars Class of 2020 are due April 10, 2020.
SGNA Nurse Fellowship Program
The purpose of the SGNA Nurse Fellowship Program is to educate and train GI/endoscopy nurses on evidence-based practice that can be then applied to their day-to-day practice. Fellows will receive in-person training using curriculum under development by SGNA and the TCU Center for Evidence-based Practice and Research: A Collaborating Center of the Joanna Briggs Institute.
This program has been discontinued as of 2018.
