Encourages discussion among participants using critique form and suggested questions. Collects evaluations, distributes CE, provides roster, evaluations, and completed facilitator critique form to CE coordinator. Copies all documents, if needed, for credentialing * Journal club article: quantitative , qualitative , meta analysis, systematic review or meta-synthesis research # http://hub.uch.edu/champions-committees/ebpchampions/journal-club-resources/ Facilitator emails CE coordinator: JC flier, article link, and evaluation form CE coordinator will open JC and post online: JC flier, article link, and evaluation Facilitator monitors blogs, encourages discussion among participants using critique form and suggested questions#, collects critique and evaluation forms. Sends evaluations, rosters, and completed facilitator critique form to CE coordinator who sends CE certificate to participants. Prints documents and blog discussion, if needed, for credentialing.

(e.g., Research Nurse Scientist, CNS/Educator, Level IV RN, other) • Reviews critique form with the journal club facilitator. • May or may not attend the journal club. • Helps the facilitator prepare for the discussion of the findings, strengths and limitations of the research article, and the statistical analyses used. 3) CNS/Educator/ANCC Designated Lead Nurse Planner (e.g. CNS, CNS/Educator, or Educator): works with facilitator to develop ANCC CE application and coordinate logistics. 4) CE Coordinator: Assists with the approval process for ANCC CE application, launches and closes virtual JC. 5) Participant: Comes prepared to JC, discusses the research article, completes the participant critique form.
