Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society held its first National Nursing Research Webinar on 23 November 2019.  

This event provided an opportunity for Filipino nurses to build relationships and to disseminate their nursing and health-related knowledge.  

The main facilitator of the webinar was Associate Professor Rhea Faye Felicilda, RN, EdD of the University of Hawaii in Manoa.

Presentors were recent doctoral nursing graduates from leading universities in the Philippines.

Richard Allan R. Soliven, RN, PhD from Central Mindanao University whose "Voices of Grit: Experience of Nurses Working Long-Term in Philippine Hospitals" discussed about Filipino nurses' resilience, ambition, and self-control in the pursuit of goals that take months, years, or even decades.  

On the other hand, Joel Acob, RN, PhD of Visayas State University presented his "Validation of an Assessment Tool for Elderly Abused". While a number of instruments and protocols for elder abuse screening have been developed, most have been created for use in hospitals, clinics, or home care. Although all share similar content and are directed toward assisting with the identification of various forms of elder mistreatment, there are key differences in the focus, format, structure, and type of data gathered by each instrument or protocol. Dr. Acob's tool is the first one that focused on Philippine setting.

‘Our next national nursing research webinar is scheduled either October and November 2020 and we’re going to start the planning for that within the next four weeks,’ Jerome Babate, the webinar host and concurrently, the president of the Beta Nu Delta Nursing Society said.
