A while back ago Ovid hosted a really good webinar on ebooks and on March 7, 12pm EST they will host the webinar, “Demystifying Research: Simplifying Critical Appraisal.”
The webinar is free, you don’t have to be an Ovid user to attend. If you are busy that day you can still register and you will be notified when the webinar is archived and available to watch.
Here is a brief description of the webinar:
Are you often frustrated when you read research studies? Do you sometimes wonder why they are so challenging? Would you be interested in learning how to use the tool of research to help you improve your patient outcomes through evidence-based practice? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us for the Webinar: Demystifying Research: Simplifying Critical Appraisal.
Anne Dabrow Woods, MSN, RN, CRNP, ANP-BC, Chief Nurse of Wolters Kluwer Health / Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Journals and Ovid Technologies, and Maureen “Shawn” Kennedy, MA, RN, Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Nursing, will have a discussion with Dr. Ellen Fineout-Overholt, PhD, RN, FNAP, FAAN, to address the steps to critically appraise research evidence and demonstrate how to embrace the process of distilling the pearls that research has to offer.
Dr. Fineout-Overholt is currently Dean & Professor, Groner School of Professional Studies and Chair, Department of Nursing of East Texas Baptist University. Additionally, she is one of the authors of AJN’s, award winning, Evidence-Based Practice, Step by Step series.
For some reason everything that is supposed to happen in March for me is happening this week. I am going to try and attend it live but if I miss it, I will definitely catch it when it is archived and available.
