This 1-day workshop is supplemented with online modules and provides a foundational understanding of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) concepts, emphasizes the importance of EBP in the military healthcare system and readiness, and gives an opportunity to further develop an EBP project to implement in a military setting. The workshop includes a pre-course online preparatory module, a one-day EBP Workshop for all participants.

A half-day EBP Coaching Workshop for current and future EBP Coaches at the hosting facility is offered the afternoon before to equip coaches to guide participants during the full day EBP workshop. It is expected that there will be three post-course EBP coaching sessions completed in the months following the workshop.

Military treatment facilities personnel can request this workshop to be held at their facility. The target audience is Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard and civilian nursing staff at the hosting facility. Other healthcare professionals supporting the mission of the military healthcare system may apply; seating may be limited.


The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Leadership Course provides critical information about the resources and support required from nursing leaders to foster a spirit of clinical inquiry and ensure successful EBP efforts occur within their organization.

The audience for this course is targeted to to Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Navy nursing in formal leadership roles; other healthcare professionals in leadership positions in the military healthcare system may also be included if appropriate.
