Description:

Implementing evidence-based processes can seem an insurmountable task, and many staff educators may not know where to begin. With the help of Evidence-Based Staff Development: Strategies to Create, Measure, and Refine Your Program, educators will immediately be able to determine how their services impact the organization, how to use objective evidence to revise their services, and how to demonstrate return on investment. Using evidence-based practice to provide effective staff education can also strengthen ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® applications.
