Class Details

Description: Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a key part of healthcare today and is of growing importance to nursing practice.

The webinar will focus on identifying key roles and strategies librarians can employ to support nurses in applying evidence-based practice to patient care.

Class Objectives
1. Understand the place of evidence-based practice in healthcare today and why it has become central to nursing practice.
2. Gain an understanding of the difference between EBP, Performance Improvement and Research
3. Identify opportunities librarians can take advantage of to support the evidence-based practices of nurses.
