Nurses lack education on designing effective interventions and on maintaining intervention fidelity. The following presentation aims to narrow this practice gap by providing education on tailoring interventions and on consistent methods for monitoring the fidelity of interventions to maintain quality control.
Brief Bio : Sharon Horner, PhD, RN, FAAN, received her PhD in Nursing and her MSN in Parent-Child Nursing from the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Horner's research focuses on improving health of families with children. She has received approximately $3.7 million over 18 years in federal funding for her primary work with school-aged children with asthma and their families who live in rural areas. She recently completed a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Institute for Nursing Research and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (10R01 NR007770) to test her intervention in a stratified randomized control trial. The focus of the intervention is to improve asthma management behaviors of parents and children; reduce asthma symptom frequency and duration, and lung inflammation. The study found significant improvements in children’s asthma-related quality of life, asthma self-management behaviors, skill in using a metered dose inhaler, and reductions in asthma severity, hospitalizations, and emergency department visits. Dr. Horner has been honored as recipient of the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists, 2014 Sue B. Davidson Service Award, the Southern Nursing Research Society 2013 Award for Research in Minority Health, and the Texas Rural Health Association, 2013 Researcher of the Year. She holds the Dolores V. Sands Chair in Nursing Research and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing. In 2015 she was elected to fill the sequence of President-elect (2015-2016), President (2016-2017), and Immediate Past President (2017-2018) of the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists.
