The Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-based Practice (EBP) in Nursing and Healthcare is proud to present the first of its national summit series – Transforming Healthcare Through Evidence-based Practice – to be hosted biennially in Columbus, Ohio, at The Ohio State University.

Ohio State College of Nursing Dean Bernadette Melnyk invites you to attend the launch of the Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-based Practice in Nursing and Healthcare at the National Summit, "Transforming Healthcare through Evidence-based Practice."

This groundbreaking event will provide nursing and transdisciplinary clinicians, leaders, academicians and researchers with the best and latest evidence to guide the highest level of practice that improves healthcare quality, safety, policy, patient outcomes and costs.

Topics will include strategies for integrating EBP into academic programs, building and sustaining an EBP culture and environment, using EBP to guide organizational and health policy, using evidence to inform consumer decision making, and dissemination and implementation of research to rapidly move evidence-based interventions into real-world clinical settings.

Attendees will hear the latest recommendations to advance and sustain EBP from leading national organizations, federal agencies and healthcare entities. Register by September 22! The cost is $495 per person and includes a pre-Summit celebratory kickoff reception on October 18, the two-day Summit attendance for October 19-20, as well as breakfast, lunch and snacks during the Summit, nursing continuing education credit and parking at the Hilton Columbus at Easton.
