Collaborate on research topics across cross-functional teams

Nursing research is a vital component of the health care field. It helps nurses continue their education and stay up-to-date with the evolving medical field. It also provides a good opportunity for nurses to contribute to medical findings and improve patient outcomes.

With the use of Workplace, nurses are better engaged to achieve the objective of knowledge generation in Nursing Research. Workplace is able to complement offline workshops and competitions with quizzes via polls, and engagement and publicity campaigns. Workplace also facilities two-way dialogues and peer-to-peer learning; so any nurse can post an article of medical research, and have a discussion with the community via comments.

Do it in your organisation in 3 easy steps:

  1. Create an Open, Closed or Secret group (depending on the confidentiality of the discussion). For more guidance on Workplace groups, watch this video here
  2. Ignite discussions with specific topics and engagement campaigns
  3. Use Polls to align everyone’s understanding after a discussion
