Improving Information Literacy Skills to Enhance Evidence-Based Practice Among NP Students

Aired on November 12, 2014

Webinar Overview

As a nurse practitioner student responsible for creating treatment plans for patients during your clinical practicum rotations, it is important that your patients' treatment plans be derived from evidence-based research literature. The increased autonomy of the nurse practitioner role compounded with the plethora of electronic health information available requires that nurse practitioner students possess information literacy skills to identify, locate, and evaluate quality health-related literature. This webinar discusses the information literacy process, evidence-based practice process, critical appraisal process, and utilization of clinical practice guidelines.
