STTI Scholarship Defined
MetadataShow full item record
The mission of the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), is advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. Nurses in all settings develop and use scientific evidence to advance health. Sigma Theta Tau International has promoted the development of and shared definitions and resources related to clinical scholarship (Dreher, 1999) and the scholarship of reflective practice (Freshwater, Horton-Deutsch, Sherwood & Taylor, 2005). Over the past decade, understanding of the nature of scholarship has expanded to embrace implementation and translation sciences, the harnessing of large sets of clinical data to provide evidence for practice increasingly in real time, the potential of social media to provide leading indicators of population health status, and additional focus on health outcomes related to health care policy. For that reason, STTI is building on the work of Dreher and of Freshwater et al. to provide an expanded understanding of scholarship to inform not only the development of, but also the translation of scientific evidence in all aspects of nursing practice.
