Igniting a Spirit of Inquiry

Recorded On: 04/06/2022

Infusion nurses play a vital role in inquiry work because they are uniquely able to identify opportunities for improvement in infusion therapy practice or potential patient safety problems. This webinar will provide an overview of inquiry and discuss the differences between the three types of inquiry including evidence-based practice (EBP), quality improvement (QI), and research. The basic evidence-based process will be examined, and participants will be introduced to three common EBP models. Resources to promote infusion nurse participation in inquiry and dissemination will also be explored.

Learning objectives: At the completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:

1.     Discuss the basic differences between evidence-based practice, quality improvement, and research

2.     Describe the basic evidence-based practice process

3.     State at least one common evidence-based practice model

4.     Describe resources available to promote infusion nurse participation in inquiry and dissemination
