Raffle, activities, and entertainment to follow! Participants will receive a t-shirt and event bag. Proceeds go to Seattle University Student Nurses Association (SUSNA).
Congratulations to our colleagues, Susan Matt and Mo-Kyung Sin, on being awarded 2009 Summer Faculty Fellowships by the Provost.
The title of Mo-Kyung’s study is Perceptions of Depression in Korean American Immigrants. She said the goal of her study is “to identify the best ways to reach the Korean immigrant communities in Washington State with information on prevention and treatment of depression.” In order to achieve this goal, she plans to analyze data collected in focus group discussions that reveal the “perceptions (knowledge and coping mechanisms) of depression in Korean American immigrants and gender differences in perceptions of depression.”
The goal of Susan’s research project entitled, Nurses with Disabilities Attitudes Scale: Results of a Pilot Test of an Instrument to Measure Registered Nurses’ Attitudes toward Nurses with Disabilities in the Hospital Workplace, is “to establish initial psychometrics” for the instrument that she developed as part of her dissertation research. She said that she hopes “to be able to use the instrument to assess the organizational disability climate in hospital workplaces and develop interventions to improve that climate in order to attract and retain nurses with disabilities in the nursing work force.”
Best wishes to you both in your endeavors!
