Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

APRNs need to understand research results and appropriately apply them to the clinical practice setting in order to optimize patient outcomes. This session focuses on implementation science and creating a culture where evidence-based practice (EBP) and research utilization are employed. A focus on change strategies with essential aspects of empowering nurses is presented, with an eye toward creating a culture of clinical inquiry where EBP is expected and contributes to exemplary professional practice.


  • State the importance of EBP in clinical practice to promote positive patient outcomes.
  • Describe essential, easily adopted steps in EBP for APRNs.
  • Apply elements of change theory and implementation science to influence and anchor clinical practice changes.
