I am proud to say that 6 of our Stanford nurses attended and presented at the Sigma Theta Tau International Research Congress, the Honor Society for Nursing, in Puerto Rico 2 weeks ago. What an incredible experience to share best practice and nursing research findings with our international colleagues. Stanford Nursing presented on the transformative power of our new Shared Leadership Council structure and our Charge Nurse Workshops. Both presentations were well received with interesting questions and enthusiasm surrounding our evidence based approaches to developing transformational frontline nurse leaders. In fact, one attendee stated that the Charge Nurse presentation was the most valuable information she had received for the entire congress. Stanford Nursing is sharing the good work you are all doing with nurses across the globe.

It is critically important that we continue to implement best practices here at Stanford, if you have a clinical question and need any assistance with an Evidence Based Practice project, please consult with our Office of Research, Patient Care Services at research@stanfordhealthcare.org. Also don’t forget the wonderful EBP leaders at the unit level such as your Research and Innovation Council unit based member, unit based CNSs, unit educators, and your gifted colleagues.

My challenge to all of you….who is going to present next?
