Associate professor Dr. Pam Baxter is the principal investigator on a new grant from Sigma Theta Tau International. Assistant professor Dr. Sheila Boamah is also co-investigator. Researchers will be examining how nurse leaders deal with a pressing issue in long-term care.

"The funding from Sigma Theta Tau International is significant because it allows us to look exclusively at resident-to-resident aggression in long-term care through the eyes of the healthcare leader. Data from this study will inform a much larger study with the goal of developing strategies to support healthcare leaders as they attempt to reduce and manage incidences of resident-to-resident aggression in long-term care,” says Baxter.

Grant details:

Baxter, P., Udod, S., Boamah, S., & Hsieh, J. (2019). Nurse leaders in LTC: Preventing, identifying, managing and reporting resident-to-resident aggression. Sigma Theta Tau International, June 1, 2020 to May 31st 2021. $4,963 (USD)
