Does anyone know who I may be able to contact to ask if they would allow me to complete my dissertation study at one of their skilled nursing facilities?
I'm hoping someone in this group may be able to help because I am searching for a skilled nursing facility to conduct a qualitative study for my PhD dissertation and I am having a problem locating a site that has begun implementing trauma-informed care.
I am asking for someone to please introduce or refer me to a facility who has begun implementing phase 3 trauma-informed care per the CMS §483.25(m) requirements.
I am a PhD student in Public Health at Walden University and I am researching nurses perspectives of implementing trauma-informed care in skilled nursing facilities. The title of my dissertation is, "Nurses Perspectives Of Trauma-Informed Care". The purpose of my study is to examine the lived experience of nurses whose skilled-nursing rehabilitation facility has adopted research-based trauma-informed care in the treatment of physically disabled patients who were subjected to Adverse Childhood Experiences/Traumatic Experiences (ACEs/TEs) and developed maladaptive coping mechanisms.
I think the findings of my study regarding nurses perspectives about trauma-informed care could provide valuable information for SNFs to understand better nurses beliefs about using trauma-informed practices. I sincerely appreciate any assistance you can give me.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
