Summary: Evidence-based practice (EBP) is a key part of healthcare today and is of growing importance to nursing practice. The increasing interest in EBP provides librarians with an avenue for partnering with nursing colleagues and demonstrating the value librarians can bring to an organization. This webinar will situate evidence-based practice in modern healthcare and describe how it has become central to nursing practice. The webinar will focus on identifying key roles and strategies librarians can employ to support nurses in applying evidence-based practice to patient care.
