“Linking Nursing Knowledge and Genomics (LINKAGE)” study

Participate in the “Linking Nursing Knowledge and Genomics (LINKAGE)” study and help shape the future of genomics education for nurses. Led by researchers Dr. Sarah Dewell, and Dr. Trina Walker, this North American study aims to promote genomics awareness in nursing practice by co-developing an online knowledge engagement hub with nurse educators.

We are currently recruiting nurse educators who hold permanent positions with their affiliated institutions (not open to sessional/limited/contract instructors). Your valuable insights are crucial to achieving our goal. We invite you to join us in this exciting opportunity to advance genomics education.

Participation involves completing a 15-minute survey with knowledge-based genomics questions. By sharing your expertise, you will contribute to a better understanding of the current level of genomic knowledge among nursing professionals. This will directly impact the development of an innovative educational hub.

To show our appreciation for your time, all survey participants will have the chance to enter a randomized draw for a $50 USD gift card. Four lucky winners will be chosen, and your personal information will remain separate from your survey responses.
