Degner’s current research is focused on how nurses can use the latest research evidence in their daily practice. She is involved in three major studies to better understand how health care organizations can alter the context for care within their organizations to promote knowledge use by nurses and, in turn, improve patient outcomes.
She also is interested in the effect such organizational interventions might have on the quality of nursing work life, and whether involvement in knowledge-translation activities will promote the retention of new nurses moving into the workforce.
