Abstract

© 2020 Elsevier Inc. A notable challenge faced by pediatric hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic included the need to decrease inpatient census and socially distant non-clinical hospital employees to alternative work arrangements. In doing so, nurses and other clinical care services employees were reassigned to new roles, while others continue to work from home. This paper aims to describe how during the COVID-19 pandemic, a pediatric hospital-based center for nursing research and evidence-based practice used this opportunity to virtually engage staff across the department in topics of clinical inquiry through education sessions, office hours, and individualized/team consultation. Therefore, elevating and increasing the presence of nursing research and evidence-based practice while providing opportunities for the continued professional development of nurses, respiratory therapists, clinical dietitians, child life specialists and employees in neurodiagnostics.
