Creating Excellence in Nursing Practice and Education:

Connecting Big Data to Patient Outcomes

Connecting Big Data to Patient Outcomes

Program Overview

This conference provides a forum for nurse educators, nurse clinicians, nurse researchers, and nurse leaders to gain knowledge and insight for generating excellence in practice and education hence improving patient outcomes. As we explore the use of big data, we hope to generate excitement and deter intimidation among the participants. The presentations will also inform approaches in navigating the road map to evidence based practice.

Through engagement and learning from experts, nurses will view a framework and explore what big data holds related to academia, practice, and healthcare systems and more importantly, tips on how to translate this to day-to-day practice to improve patient outcomes.

We will envision the future and begin to develop logical plans using big data to meet and respond to current health care challenges and future opportunities.
