Free Ovid Webcast: Improving Nursing with Technology

No Comments »

Ovid Technologies is offering a free online Webcast titled “Improving Nursing Practice with Information and Technology”  on Thursday, April 29, 2010, at 12:00 – 1:00 EST.

Anne Dabrow Woods, Chief Nurse of Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid will discuss how and where nurses are using information in practice today and what uses are on the horizon for tomorrow.

How do nurses access and use information in practice today? In educational settings? As part of their professional development? And how does that setting…
  • An acute care institution
  • Primary care facilities
  • An educational or research environment

…determine what information is needed and how it will be used?

To help address these topics, Anne will be joined by Linda Laskowski-Jones, MS, RN, ACNS-BC, CCRN, CEN, the Vice President of Emergency, Trauma and Aeromedical Services at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, Delaware, and editor-in-chief Nursing2010, who will talk about the real-world trends in information and technology in nursing practice at a hospital that is both highly-committed to technology and has achieved Magnet status in nursing.

This webcast will also summarize the main takeaways from a new in-depth white paper prepared by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid that analyzes their own research findings into how nurses in North American access and use information in practice, education, and professional development environments.

Discussing the implications of the research with Anne will be Mark Barragry, Director of Strategic Growth Markets at Ovid and Nick Scheponik, Manager of Market Research, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid.

Plus, Webcast attendees will receive the full white paper during the webcast via email, one week before it will be generally available.
