Pat’s white papers have focused on key clinical topic summaries or how-tos. The most popular are those in a series to provide nurses with discrete information about caring for patients who require chest drainage.
In response to requests from her target audience, Pat wrote
- Annotated bibliography on stripping chest tubes; nurses requested the research done on this technique so they could write policies and procedures that are evidence-based
- A summary of the evidence supporting chest tube dressing management with supporting annotated bibliography
