Welcome to the Parent/Child Research Interest Group (RIG) from Dr. Linda Merritt, Chair, and Dr. Rebecca Logan, Co-chair. The Parent/Child RIG is committed to facilitating the advancement of research for the care of parents and children. Nurse researchers play a pivotal role in providing high-quality, evidence-based care through the creation and dissemination of nursing research. During the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the advances made in regard to parents being seen as part of the healthcare team were challenged. The Parent/Child RIG is dedicated to providing a forum to continue advancing health care for parents and children by promoting best practices, providing networking opportunities, sharing information, and providing support and inspiration to those interested in this area of research. We welcome all interested to join our RIG- researchers, academicians, bedside nurses, clinicians, and students- and encourage all members to participate. Be sure to “sign-up” by logging into the Members-Only section and choose which RIG(s) to join. There is no fee to participate as part of your membership benefits.
