Held over a span of two days, the course is scheduled to take place March 11-12, 2019, at Cleveland Clinic’s Administrative Campus in Beachwood, Ohio.

Learn, appreciate and apply evidence-based practice knowledge

Presented by several doctoral-prepared faculty members from the Office of Nursing Research and Innovation, the course provides attendees with detailed guidance on “understanding the literature” and “synthesizing the literature” components of the evidence-based practice process. It offers didactic and workshop formats designed to:

  • Facilitate an electronic search of the literature.
  • Discuss the strength and quality of research and review evidence.
  • Understand systematic review and meta-analysis findings including, understanding how to interpret forest plots.
  • Make best decisions when synthesizing data based on available literature.
  • Describe translation (diffusion) processes and resources needed to adopt real-world evidence into clinical practice.

“This compelling and highly informative course was created by Cleveland Clinic nurse scientists, who lead and mentor clinical nursing teams in both research and the evaluation and application of evidence,” says Nancy M. Albert, PhD, CCNS, CHFN, CCRN, NE-BC, FAAN, Associate Chief Nursing Officer, Nursing Research and Innovation. “It is our hope that through this course, participants will be able to learn, appreciate and apply new knowledge immediately to become leaders in understanding and facilitating evidence-based practices in their own work settings.”
