The slides and video from our latest webinar with Associate Professor Zachary Munn form the Joanna Briggs Institute are now available.
Evidence-based healthcare relies on the use of the best available evidence in healthcare. This often requires a change in the way care is delivered, and change can be difficult. This presentation described methods for evidence implementation, with a focus on audit and feedback as a mechanism to change and improve practice. Specifically, this presentation will discussed:
- An introduction to evidence-based healthcare
- Current barriers to evidence-based healthcare
- An introduction to evidence implementation and strategies for implementation
- An introduction to audit and feedback projects including real world examples
