Crouse CNS Michael Allain Honored by Omicron Alpha

12/28/11

Mike Allain PicMichael Allain, a clinical nurse specialist at Crouse Hospital, has received the Excellence in Research Award from the Omicron Alpha Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. The award recognizes the accomplishments of an active member of Omicron Alpha in the area of nursing research. The recipient must meet one or more of the following criteria: conducts distinguished research in nursing; communicates nursing research findings through publications, presentations at conferences/ workshops/seminars, consultation, or teaching; gives evidence of a history of nursing research activities. Allain currently serves as a CNS in the hospital’s ICU and Emergency Department. Allain recently replicated a study related to the use of a specialized dressing to prevent pressure ulcers for high-risk patients who meet specific criteria in the intensive care unit. Through his leadership and collegiality, he enlisted staff members to perform routine ‘skin rounds’ in the ICU, identifying and implementing interventions that have significantly decreased nosocomial pressure ulcers in the ICU. Omicron Alpha is committed to advancing nursing leadership, scholarship and research in clinical practice and in public policy.
