Thank you to all those who attended this year's Healthcare Leadership Forum: Leveraging Evidence Across the Care Continuum!

This year's meeting was a truly successful event! We expanded the program to include multidisciplinary evidence-based practice, thus including physicians and IT and healthcare executives and leaders in nursing and interdisciplinary care and it turned out to be great idea — many of you appreciated the expanded program and we look forward to how we can meet your needs for next year's meeting.

Catch up on latest news from the meeting at or see news stories below.
