Around the world, home health nurses provide care for individuals, support families and interact with communities. Research and evidence-based practice are important components of home health nursing and bring value to our profession and specialty. The IHCNO is interested in fostering relationships with and between researchers or clinicians that investigate the quality of home health care and home health nursing within the international community. We are especially interested in research related to the International Guidelines for Home Health Nursing. For more information about the Research Committee and its work, email
