PITMAN, NJ - As the dermatology nursing specialty has expanded, evidence-based practice and research articles have also increased. Dermatology nurses are questioning old practice methods, conducting more research and writing articles to support new methods.



Dermatology Nursing® has long supported dermatology nurses' research efforts, publishing four or more research articles per year since 2002. To show its continued support of dermatology nursing research, the journal will introduce a regular research column in the July/August 2009 issue.



The column will be written by Steven J. Ersser, RGN, PhD (Lond), BSc (Hons), CertTHEd, Professor- Nursing Development and Skin Care Research, and Director, Centre for Wellbeing & Quality of Life, School of Health & Social Care, Bournemouth University, UK. Ersser is a highly respected nurse researcher and educator, and a Dermatology Nursing® Editorial Board member. He will write about research issues important to dermatology nursing practice, identify key gaps in evidence and highlight new developments that challenge existing practice.



"Dr. Ersser's international dermatology nursing expertise will provide the foundation for our readers to use evidence-based practice to improve their patients' lives," said Dermatology Nursing® Editor Marcia Hill, MSN, RN.



Ersser will be speaking about research on Friday, September 25, 2009, during the Dermatology Nursing Institute Annual Congress in Washington, DC. In his session, "Evidence-Based Practice: An Illustration From Dermatology Nursing Research," Ersser will discuss how to use evidence-based practice to improve the quality and effectiveness of patient care. The complete conference program is available on the Dermatology Nursing® Web site, www.dermatologynursing.net.



"It is important for practitioners to undertake and publish investigations regarding dermatology nursing practice," Ersser writes in his first column. "I am excited to be able to share my knowledge with dermatology nurses through Dermatology Nursing® journal and at the Dermatology Nursing Institute Annual Congress."



Dermatology Nursing® is published by Jannetti Publications, Inc., a division of Anthony J. Jannetti, Inc, a full-service association management, marketing, and publishing company serving the health care industry and specialty nursing associations.
