The tenth-annual EBP Conference will introduce evidence-based practice initiatives that are in development or currently underway. These evidence-based initiatives are led by local healthcare providers, both independently and collaboratively.

The Conference will highlight initiatives that will introduce staff, students, and administrators to actual projects. Participants will be able to ‘taste’ the process, challenges, and rewards that nursing and other professional initiatives encompass for quality patient care and professional development and satisfaction.
