Free breakfast session at AONE 2010 on Improving Nursing Practice with Information and Technology
  Anne Dabrow Woods, Publisher of AJN and Chief Nurse of Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and Ovid, will host a free breakfast at AONE 2010 on Monday, April 12th from 6:30 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. called Improving Nursing Practice with Information and Technology: Product Innovation through User Research at Wolters Kluwer Health. Learn how a leading information provider navigates the complex world of nursing information through a continual, worldwide research program that analyses how nurses access and use information in practice, education, and professional development environments today, and what uses may be on the horizon. You'll take away the major conclusions of this research, including how the specific context in which a nurse is working-in an acute care institution, in primary care, or in an educational or research environment-significantly determines what information is needed and how it will be used. Joining Anne will be Mark Barragry, Director of Strategic Growth Markets at Ovid. To reserve your space at this free event, register at http://www.ovid.com/aone2010breakfast before April 8th.
