Progress on the Institute of Medicine Recommendations: More Evidence

August 2, 2017

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

The Institute of Medicine made clear: “Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training.” The evidence is also clear: Consumers benefit when they have better access to high-quality care from nurse practitioners and other advanced practice registered nurses.

Join expert Joanne Spetz, PhD, FAAN, director of the University of California, San Francisco Health Workforce Research Center, as she highlights new studies that reinforce findings presented in the 2016 webinar “The Evidence Shows: Better Laws Mean Better, More Accessible Care.”

Participants will:
  • Examine findings from new studies that provide evidence for the benefits of increased access to high-quality care.
  • Discuss questionable conclusions in studies that compare physician and APRN practices.
  • Review how political spending influences licensing laws.
