Monique Bouvier, PhD, RN, C-PNP is a research nurse scientist who works in the Office of Research Patient Care Services (ORPCS) at Stanford Health Care (SHC). Previously Monique was as a research nurse for the United States Navy where she worked on many different research studies. One project was a multisite qualitative research study titled, Global Health Engagement (GHE) Missions: Lessons Learned Aboard US Naval Ships. Monique was a member of a team that interviewed over 140 military health care personnel who were part of the shipboard GHE mission. Their overall aim was to capture experiential learning during global health engagement missions and provide narratives of GHE missions.
Monique and the multidisciplinary team analyzed the interviews using an interpretive ethnographic approach. They were able to take the information from the interviews and summarize essential lessons that military healthcare personnel need for GHE missions. Five essential elements to prepare military healthcare personnel for missions were identified: mission clarity, preparedness, experiential knowledge, lessons learned, and flexibility/adaptability. This information was recently published in the November/December 2019 issue of the journal Military Medicine.
