Invitation to Participate

Posted 8 days ago by Deb Lane

Dear Nurse Colleague:

My name is Marcia Lowe.  I am a PhD student in Nursing at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, in Birmingham, Alabama.  I am completing my dissertation research.  I am writing to invite you to complete an online survey for a research study entitled, “ An exploratory study of the influence of Perceived Organizational Support, So-Worker Social support, the Nursing Practice Environment, and Nurses Demographics on Emotional Exhaustion (EE) in Palliative Care Nurses”.   This survey will examine the influence of perceived organizational support, co-worker social support, the nursing practice environment, and nurse demographics on emotional exhaustion (EE) in palliative care nurses.  The knowledge gained from the survey may lead to improvements in the palliative care work environment.


You are receiving this invitation because you are an active registered nurse member of the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Association (HPNA), working in an inpatient setting, and providing direct patient care.  If you choose to participate in the research, please type in the link provided by Qualtrics software listed below and follow the instructions.


Completing and returning the questionnaire constitutes your consent to participate.  There are no forms to return and the survey will take approximately up to 30 minutes to complete. Access the online survey at https://uab.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_41ScwDkvQrhe17L

 Thank you for your contribution.
