The purpose of this project is to elicit a contemplative, deep, and yearlong discussion among the 13 undergraduate research assistants in Dr. Murphy’s laboratory about the ways in which the mission of the Seattle University College of Nursing and its Jesuit traditions are—and should better be—reflected in their approach to conducting meaningful biomedical science. They will engage the Jesuit community and nursing leaders involved in biomedical research and seek to evoke a broader dialogue that helps to discern what it means to approach questions of biomedical significance from a nursing and mission-centric perspective. If successful, Dr. Murphy plans to introduce the central elements of this project into a new undergraduate core course focused on exploring the meaning and significance of interprofessional education in health sciences and the healing arts. This project is expected to strengthen the College of Nursing’s commitment to Health Science research that ties nursing to other departments across the Seattle University campus. Dr. Murphy expects to submit a manuscript with multiple undergraduate student coauthors for publication describing their experience.
The project will build upon an existing collaborative partnership between Mr. Christophe Nteziryayo, the nutritionist of the Gashora Health Centre in Rwanda and Dr. Lauren Lawson of SUCON. Mr. Nteziryayo’s program, entitled the Gashora Hello Family Association (GHFA) provides emotional support and tangible aid to children with HIV/AIDS and their families. The intention of the upcoming visit is to provide Mr. Nteziryayo with technical assistance and training to complete a program evaluation. During the visit, criteria to demonstrate the effectiveness of the GHFA will be identified and program evaluation parameters determined. Funding from the Alpha Sigma Chapter Faculty Scholarship will ensure continue collaboration between Mr. Nteziryayo and SUCON by providing him with the tools to support his goals of creating a computer-based data collection system; analyzing existing data to determine the effectiveness of current projects and to inform future projects; and to share GHFA outcomes through publication and creation of a website. The availability of a computer will also enhance on-going communication Mr. Nteziryayo and Dr. Lawson.
My research focuses on developing a tool to rapidly measure teamwork and communication during obstetrical emergencies with the goal of improving team performance and decreasing maternal and infant mortality, particularly in low and middle income countries. Ultimately, we hope that this tool can be used during simulated and real-time obstetrical emergencies to assist in improving team performance and decreasing maternal and infant mortality worldwide.
At Navos Inpatient Hospital, staff members lead a scheduled group called Wrap-Up Group to cultivate a sense of inclusion and community among patients. Currently, staff members lack hospital-approved teaching tools and curricula to aid in the mediation of these groups. To remedy the dearth of materials available to run this group, my project involves the development of lesson plans that incorporate evidence-based group therapy models and techniques (i.e. mindfulness, meditation, guided imagery, etc.). The topics on which these groups will focus include stress management, emotion regulation, coping strategies, among others. By providing lesson plans and teaching tools, my project aims to support patient recovery, promote staff skill-set development and contribute to a therapeutic milieu culture.
