Introduction to Evidence-Based Practice


The Department of Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) presents a 4-hour workshop focused on learning the fundamentals of evidence-based practice. Using the Stanford Children's Health EBP Model, you will learn an overview of the EBP process and how to apply it to a clinical situation. Our instructors will provide you the knowledge, tools and skills needed for you to conduct an EBP initiative. The workshop involves both didactic and interactive sessions using an exemplar to guide the participants through the EBP process.
