About this Event:

Have you ever been asked to evaluate the implementation of a practice change and not sure where to start? If you're thinking yes, then come to this one-day workshop designed for clinicians and practice leaders to understand how to evaluate evidence-based practice changes.

This workshop will inspire health-care professionals involved in clinical projects and practice change activities to integrate principles of evaluation throughout the change process to demonstrate the value of their implementation. This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to develop and apply new knowledge and skills in evaluation to demonstrate the impact of evidence-based practice on health outcomes.

RNAO is proud to bring you this innovative, one-of-a-kind workshop so you can continue to build your confidence, knowledge and capacity as a health-care professional.
