Leading the Way: Fostering a Culture of Evidence-Based Practice

June 10, 2024 to June 11, 2024

As a healthcare leader, your role is vital to ensure safe, high-quality patient care. This relies on a robust culture of evidence-based practice (EBP). Leaders must cultivate an environment that encourages questioning and learning at every level. By establishing a clear vision, empowering advocates, and integrating evidence into decision-making, leaders can create a culture where EBP flourishes.

We invite you to embark on a journey with us through our innovative, two-day virtual workshop, where you will gain valuable insights and practical strategies for building and sustaining a culture of EBP within your organization. Guided by seasoned EBP experts and organizational leaders, you will learn how to transcend reliance on historical precedent and tradition, shifting towards a paradigm that prioritizes inquiry, curiosity, and the ongoing pursuit of best practices.

June 10: 8:00 am - 2:15 pm 

June 11: 8:00 am- 3:00 pm 

The workshop time is EST.

*Workshop capacity is limited to 25 participants, so reserve your spot today!
