The Research to Practice column is intended to elevate the research critique skills of the advanced practice nurse and to assist with translation of research to practice. For each column, a topic and a particular research study are selected. The stage is set by introducing the importance of the topic. The research paper is then reviewed and critiqued, and finally, the implications for transla- tion into practice are discussed. In this column, the following research article is reviewed: Tanabe et al. (2008) “Increased Blood Pressure in the Emergency Department: Pain, Anxiety, or Undiag- nosed Hypertension.” The implications of these findings for advanced practice nurses are discussed. Key words: emergency department, hypertension, pain She wants to stand during the triage process THE CASE because it hurts too much to move.
