Summer Institute On Evidence-Based Practice

Frontline Improvement: How to Do It, How to Lead it, How to Inform It

Date: July 7-10, 2010
Location: The Hyatt Regency Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio, Texas

Frontline is the foundation of any productivity!

The 2010 Institute built capacity for healthcare providers to shape the future of quality and safety in healthcare through translating evidence into practice. Cutting edge approaches require knowing how to inform improvement with evidence, how to employ improvement strategies, and how to lead improvement at every level. Recognizing that gains are made through convergence of evidence, organizational climate, clinician vitality, and change, this conference explored best approaches to accelerate frontline improvement.

Participants learned ‘what works’ in building care processes and supporting care providers in the evolving environment of improvement.

The Summer Institute on EBP was a direct response to the national call for healthcare providers to bridge research and quality care by preparing our workforce to redesign health systems that are safe and effective.
