Krystle’s research will help registered nurses implement fundamental care into their practice as there is currently limited evidence to help teach in industry.
“I hope to be able to generate knowledge on how the Fundamentals of Care Framework can be successfully implemented into nursing curricula,” she says.
“This may enable nurses to deliver high quality fundamental care and impact through positive patient outcomes.”
Teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate nursing, Krystle finds it important to prepare nurses to positively impact patient outcomes and satisfy patient needs.
Through her research, she is hopeful that she can find recommendations and strategies to assist nursing educators.
This would provide them with the knowledge and skills to successfully implement the Fundamentals of Care framework into nursing curricula.
