Project Title Study Aim

Effect of a Structured Activity Room Session in the Inpatient Setting: A Retrospective Chart Review


Author: Heather Roorda MSN RN-BC

Studies show social/leisure activities were found to have a positive effect on the well-being of older adults. Activities such as music listening, playing cards, and painting resulted in decreased agitation and improved cognitive performance. A retrospective chart review will look at patient outcome data to evaluate the effect of a once a week, 1 hour "Happy Hour" activity session conducted on our 2c medical unit.

Pain Management at End of Life: Enhancing Nurses’ Self-Efficacy


Author: Rose Conde, MSN, FNP-C

Will the implementation of education for end of life care including comfort care orders with a focus on pain management, improve self-efficacy for nurses in pain management as measured by the Pain Management Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (PMSEQ)? This is an observational study that will incorporate observation, audit, and feedback.

Nursing research and innovation are supported by donations to El Camino Hospital Foundation.
