The Fourth Annual Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nursing Research Symposium - Nursing Research, Evidence-Based Practice, and Quality Improvement: What’s the Difference? - Cancelled

This program has been cancelled.

Many nurses are unsure how to respond when asked to discuss the difference between evidence-based nursing practice (EBP), nursing research and quality improvement (QI). All of these processes, when done well, result in new knowledge generation or knowledge-synthesis. Each process has unique features and essential requirements, and all have the potential to inform and improve nursing care and nursing practice. Evidence-based practice, nursing research and quality improvement all start with some form of a question and many factors enter into a decision to choose one discovery process over another to answer the question. Join us at this skills-oriented conference to determine whether an evidence-based practice, research or quality improvement process is best suited to explore the question that YOU have about your practice. PLEASE BE PREPARED TO DISCUSS A CURRENT PROBLEM YOU ARE FACED WITH IN YOUR CLINICAL PRACTICE.

Our keynote speaker this year is former Norris Cotton Cancer Center advanced practice nurse and scientist, Dr. Ellen Lavoie Smith. Dr. Smith will share her professional development path as well as highlight her contributions to nursing science in the field of oncology nursing. We look forward to hosting our additional presenters at this conference, all of whom are current and former DH nurses. Please see our plan of the day for additional information.
