Course Description
Health care organizations are increasingly reliant on data to drive policy, evaluation and decision making in their efforts to achieve higher levels of quality care delivery. Nursing leaders are being held accountable to demonstrate the value and impact of nursing on quality and safety outcomes through evidence and data. There is global variation in the quality and availability of useful data to support nurse leaders in informed decision making and policy development. The aims of this meeting are to review the current state of evidence demonstrating the impact of nursing on quality and safety outcomes; identify the utility and limitations of current sources; methods to translate data and evidence into useful management tools; and to consider future directions.

Program Learning Objectives
At the completion of the course, participants should be able to:
1. Provide an overview of current evidence demonstrating nursing impact on quality and safety.
2. Describe the current sources for data and its utility in evaluating the impact of nursing on quality and safety.
3. Consider methods to translate data and evidence in to useful tools to support evaluation and decision making.
4. Engage in an interactive dialogue for future directions for development of useful and meaningful data measuring nursing’s contribution to quality and safety.

The Centre for Professional Development at Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto is pleased to present this event.
