Published:April 06, 2021DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pedn.2021.04.001
      With the discovery of new knowledge, this new information provides the basis for improving nursing care of children and families, as well as the opportunity to change pediatric nursing practice. Through research, new knowledge is gained providing the foundational evidence for evidence-based practice and quality improvement projects that ultimately lead to practice change. Nursing research generates new evidence that is then translated into practice through evidence-based practice and quality improvement projects (

      ). To that end, discovering new knowledge is essential for developing appropriate interventions to meet the identified care needs of children and their families. In this way, these practice changes advance the quality of pediatric nursing while improving the quality of care for children and their families.
