This session is designed to appeal to introductory-level and advanced audiences.  Relying on best guesses and/or habit for patient care doesn't cut it in our regulatory landscape.  Evidence-based practice (EBP) conditions caregivers to be more consistent from patient to patient,  improving quality scores and patient satisfaction.  We'll begin by defining EBP and reviewing how it really takes form.
