My mission is to close the gap between clinical practice and research evidence. I study on topics related to evidence-based practice for nurses. I teach epidemiology/biostatistics,literature searching/critical appraisal of quantitative literature,and evidence-based practice at National college of Nursing, Japan. Major past research activity was to support clinician-led clinical research projects (data management, statistical analysis, and setup systems for data capturing and clinical performance feedback).
