Opportunity to Participate in Research Regarding Smartphone Use by APRNs

Posted over 4 years ago by Joy Deupree

Smartphone Use to Answer Clinical Questions: A Descriptive Study of APRNs

Offered by: Adelia Grabowsky, MLIS, CAS Health Sciences Librarianship, Auburn University

You are invited to participate in a research study to understand how Advanced Practice Registered Nurses are using smartphones to answer clinical questions. I am interested in responses from those who do not use smartphones at point of care as well as those that do. You may participate if you are approved to practice as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in Alabama.

Participants will be asked to complete an online questionnaire which should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Information gathered will be used to better understand how smartphones are being used in clinical areas and how resources or training might be developed to improve access to information via smartphones.

There are no costs, incentives, or anticipated risks associated with this study. If you are interested but would like more information about this study, an information letter can be obtained by clicking on this link by going to: 

If you decide to participate after reading the letter, you can access the survey from a link in the letter.

 If you have any questions, please contact me at or (334) 844-1797.

Thank you for your consideration,
