Why Attend the Symposium?

As the health care landscape rapidly changes to incorporate the needs of our communities, we must embrace a value-based continuum of care approach. Promoting a healthy community is paramount.

At the Cone Health Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Symposium, nurses and other health care providers enhance knowledge and develop strategies to integrate evidence-based practice and research into clinical practice and to create or influence health policy.
