The theme for the 2017 Evidence-Based Nursing Conference is “Transforming Nursing: Building A Culture of Innovation.” In keeping with these themes, the Planning Committee is interested in abstracts that are pertinent these perspectives:
Sessions describe innovative onboarding/orientation processes. Onboarding is the fluid process of hiring, orienting, socializing, and integrating an employee to the organization with a focus on retention and growth. Orientation is one facet of the onboarding process and is comprised of an individualized program to guide the new hire towards job competency.
Sessions describe innovative/transformational competency management processes. Competency management is a dynamic process designed to support ongoing assessment and evaluation of performance.
Sessions describe strategies used to improve professional practice (nursing and interprofessional continuing education) and the provision of quality patient care. Content may relate to any components of the educational design process including identification of professional practice gaps, gap analysis, content development, teaching strategies – including use of technology, and outcomes measurement.
Sessions describe identification and development of strategies to facilitate a continuous process of maturation through lifelong learning. This type of development allows for role transition, role integration, skill acquisition, and mastery as learners advance from novice to expert in their professions and specialties.
Sessions describe mutually beneficial relationship between two or more individuals, groups or organizations that work jointly toward common goals. These may include (but are not limited to) academic/practice partnerships, interprofessional continuing education, community partnerships with emergency medical services and public/community health departments to address threats to population health or disaster management, and collaboration with other organizations promoting population health.
Sessions describe participation in research, evidence-based practice (EBP), and quality improvement (QI) activities related to nursing professional development practice.
