Nursing’s Herdman hosts two scholars from Brazil for public presentations
Assistant Prof. of Nursing Heather Herdman is hosting two visiting scholars from the Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Brazil, the week of October 13. Camila Takáo Lopes, Ph.D., RN, is the author of “Identification of the predictive factors for bleeding in the immediate postoperative period after cardiac surgery.” Agueda Calvalcante, Ph.D., RN, is author of “Nursing interventions and outcomes in people with congestive heart failure and ineffective self-health management.” The two researchers are going to present results of their research with Herdman’s Evidence-Based Practice Class, which meets at 4 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 15). Herdman invites all who are interested to sit in on the presentations, which will take about 20 minutes each and allow time for questions. The class will be held in Room 103 of the Union.
