8am - 11:30am
Workshop 1. Editor’s Workshop
Nurse leaders in practice, administration, and education have exciting ideas and innovations that would be beneficial to share with others. However, many are not familiar with the writing and publishing process and thus sharing through the professional literature, a traditional communication channel, can be a daunting task. In this workshop, Dr. Leslie Nicoll will use “Manuscript Success” as a method to demystify the publishing process and provide practical evidence-based strategies for achieving publication goals. Using presentation, audience participation, questions, and discussion, participants will gain knowledge and confidence in how to write manuscripts that will be favorably received by editors and reviewers. Identifying and overcoming pitfalls, ethical issues, and effective use of resources will also be discussed.
Workshop 2. Evidence Based Practice
Healthcare organizations in the future must be evidence-based. This preconference will enable you to build your competence (knowledge, skills and attitude) to lead these enterprises or to teach future leaders to do so. Topics for both leaders and educators will include; the foundational case that underpins the necessity for EBP in meeting the Quadruple Aim/achieving High Reliability, the steps of EBP methodology, the difference and synergies of research/EBP/QI/innovation, assessment of organizational and personal readiness for EBP, and the specific work required of leaders, to build and sustain an evidence-based enterprise.
