Understanding and Using Research Literature: Research utilization is one of IPAC-Canada's Core Competencies for ICPs. This webinar will help ICPs develop some of the knowledge and skills needed to meet this competency by focusing on how to find and critically appraise research literature and on tips for drawing conclusions from available evidence so that recommendations can be made for practice. Other aspects of the research utilization competency, such as collaborating with others to disseminate research or evaluation findings, will also be briefly discussed.
