Research Abstract

Amy Rex Smith: My focused research program is in spirituality and health, specifically spiritual care in acute care nursing settings. My most recent effort has been internally funded "University of Massachusetts Boston, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Dean痴 Initiative Research Grant" in February 2005: 鉄piritual Assessment by Registered Nursesand 鉄pirituality of Acute Care Nurses a study using the AACN Synergy model. I have just finished data collection at the BWH from over 100 patient medical records to evaluate spiritual assessment and 34 acute care staff nurses to test for the effects spiritual well-being effects on spiritual care perspectives (a partial replication of a 2004 study by Musgrave and McFarlane published in ONF). Data analysis is in progress.
