Presentation on Evidence-Based Practice in the Library on June 18 – Implementing Evidence into Practice

Join us this Tuesday, June 18, for a presentation about implementing evidence into practice. The presentation will begin at 11:30am in AV2 on the second floor of the Macdonald-Kelce Library.

“The biggest challenge in healthcare today is providing cost-effective, evidence-based quality care that improves practice and patient outcomes. Creating an evidence-based organization is more than providing healthcare providers with evidence-based information. A true evidence-based organization generates and synthesizes evidence, implements it into practice, and then evaluates the practice changes and patient outcomes. This session will explain the definition, purpose, and methodology of evidence-based practice and translational science as well as how to implement evidence into practice and overcome the barriers to implementation for healthcare institutions and academic centers.”

Our presenter will be Chief Nurse Anne Woods.

“Anne Dabrow Woods is the Chief Nurse of Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research Division which includes Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid Technologies. Anne has over 15 years of publishing experience, 29 years of experience in nursing and healthcare and has been a nurse practitioner for 15 years. Anne still practices as a nurse practitioner in acute care and is adjunct faculty. In her role as Chief Nurse, she is responsible for developing the nursing and evidence-based strategy for the company. Anne received her Bachelor’s Degree from West Chester University, her Master’s Degree from LaSalle University and is completing her Doctoral Degree at Texas Christian University.”
