The Annual Students Research Findings Symposium was held on January 8th, 2018. There were seven presentations consisting of workshop group projects as well as three students presenting results from their Target Research Training Program (TRT) research and one student presenting conference findings. ERC faculty and students were present to evaluate the presentations, give constructive feedback by asking questions, and provide an audience for students to practice presenting their work.

Three workshop student groups presented on:

  • Home Healthcare Simulation: Measurement of Administering Nebulizer Medication; Renee Lewis, Katherine Ollier, and Jennifer Baker
  • Occupational Hazards Encountered by Hospice Healthcare Workers; Mamadou Niang, Bhargav Chandrashekar, and Christopher Brann

 

Three TRT students presented on:

  • An Integrative Review of Occupational Exposures of Home Healthcare Workers; Elizabeth Bien
