Description

The goal of every nurse and doctor is to provide the best possible care to her or his patients and, of course, never do harm to anyone. Fundamental to this concept of “doing good” is acquisition of knowledge. Much of that knowledge is acquired during training with experienced individuals; however, “new information” is learned from seminars, books, and journals. Unfortunately, incorrect data can lead to errors in care that can be detrimental for our critically ill infants. Good health care providers learn to use both individual clinical expertise and the best available external evidence to make decisions; neither alone, is enough.

Learning Objective:

  • Discuss how practitioners acquire new information to improve care; include sources of information and potential pitfalls in acquiring knowledge.

Speaker(s):

  • Richard A. Polin, MD, Director, Division of Neonatology, Columbia University Medical Center
