Description/Overview: Bio-Touch is a butterfly light touch therapy used to manage stress, pain and well-being. Undergraduate nursing students utilized this therapy to develop and undertake research, analyzing the findings and presenting the research orally and in poster form in class, to the university and community. The culture of undergraduate nursing research was significantly changed in the Division of Nursing, as well as the university and the student learning outcomes in the research course significantly improved as a result.
Learner Objective #1: The learner will be able to identify the benefits of Bio-Touch and its efficacy of use as an alternative therapy based on evidence based research.
Learner Objective #2: The learner will be able to develop research teaching strategies with undergraduate nursing students by involvement in action-based research strategy, changing cultures in the university.
