Effective Care and Health Outcomes (ECHO)

The focus of this research field is on rigorous evaluations of conventional and innovative forms of nursing and health care, using randomized controlled trials, theory-driven evaluations, interventions, and systematic reviews of the evidence. Studies are conducted in formal and informal health-care settings, addressing a wide variety of health and illness issues in, for example, cancer and palliative care, genetics, critical care, cardiovascular disease, frail elder care, acute and chronic pain in adults, infants and children, and in the area of sleep. Many of the studies are multidisciplinary and international in scope.
