Practice-Based Evidence

How One Nurse Turned Her Day-to-Day Experiences Into Research


  • Carol Shieh DNSc, RNC

  • Editor’s Note: Dr. Carol Shieh is the lead author of a research study published in the July/August 2006 issue of the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic and Neonatal Nursing (JOGNN) entitled “Severity of Drug Use, Initiation of Prenatal Care, and Maternal-Fetal Attachment in Pregnant Marijuana and Cocaine/Heroin Users.” We invited her to write a practice article based on that study for AWHONN Lifelines.
