April 7, 2005. The National Institute of Health has awarded Dr. Suzanne Bakken of Columbia University's School of Nursing a $675,000 grant to develop "Mobile Decision Support for Advanced Practice Nursing." Beginning in September 2005, over 300 doctoral and nurse practitioner candidates will use Palm and Pocket PC devices in three practice areas: depression screening, smoking cessation, and obsesity management. CCNMTL will collaborate with the School of Nursing to design and develop this program, which promotes evidence-based, error-free patient care for nurses in training.
