Abstract

Academic-practice partnerships provide a model for sharing resources, increasing professional knowledge and skills, improving patient outcomes, and strengthening organizational cultures of quality and safety. This article describes the long-term outcomes of a regional collaborative evidence-based practice fellowship. Results reveal the fellowship had a measurable positive impact on fellows' evidence-based practice knowledge and practice, project outcomes, professional growth, and the culture of excellence within partner organizations.
