Nurse Educators are expected to use evidence in their role, as well as to teach and support others to practice EBP. In this session, take a look at the power of EBP and how nurse educators play a pivotal role in its dissemination to achieve critical patient outcomes and minimise risk. Learn how you can use EBP in the development of clinical policies and procedures in your own workplace, as well as tips for translating research into practice.
