Abstract

Background: Precision health is a population-based approach that incorporates big-data strategies to understand the complex interactions between biological, environmental, lifestyle, and psychosocial factors that influence health. Purpose: A promising tool to facilitate precision health research and its dissemination is the ConNECT Framework. Methods: Here, we discuss the relationship of the five broad and synergistic principles within the ConNECT Framework as they may apply to nursing science research: (1) Integrating Context, (2) Fostering a Norm of Inclusion, (3) Ensuring Equitable Diffusion of Innovations, (4) Harnessing Communication Technology, and (5) Prioritizing Specialized Training. Discussion/Conclusion: The principles within this framework can be used by nurse scientists and educators to guide and disseminate precision health research.
