HSCN's Evidence-Based Practice Program Expands to Neighbor Islands
The Hawai`i State Center for Nursing's Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Program held the fifth bi-monthly meeting of our twelve month internship program on February 2, 2017. Kona Community Hospital and The Queen's Conference Center generously hosted our two internship meeting sites.
This year, our EBP program incorporated an innovative idea. We use GoToMeeting to remotely link sites between O`ahu and Hawai`i Island. Technology has become a strategic tool to facilitate participation and engagement in our internship program by our neighbor island teams.
The February internship meeting agenda consisted of project progress reports and discussion followed by didactic content focused on evaluating and sustaining a practice change. This session also addressed writing abstracts for dissemination. Teams continued working on their projects after a lunch break and into the afternoon.
