2011 ONS Foundation Institute for Evidence-Based Practice Change
October 13-16, 2011 • Pittsburgh, PA
Discover how you can increase the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) in your oncology setting at the Institute for Evidence-Based Practice Change. Through this innovative program, institutional teams will work together to implement EBP in their setting and measure its effect on patient outcomes and cancer care.
This interactive conference will provide your institution with the foundation needed to implement an evidence-based, measurable, practice change in the following 12 months. In addition to the knowledge gained at the conference, year-long mentoring will help you to identify and manage barriers to change, communicate your goals, develop tools to implement your planned practice change, and more. Learn more about:
- Demystifying evidence-based practice
- Finding the best evidence
- Identifying the burning clinical question
- Applying knowledge in the clinical setting
- Developing plans to achieve fiscally responsible healthcare outcomes
- Hardwiring practice change
In addition, the IEBPC can assist you as you pursue Magnet status.
