Power Up Outcomes with Evidence Based Practice

Conference Schedule

Welcome to the Power Up Outcomes with Evidence Based Practice online conference! We are so excited you have decided to join us and hope you enjoy this three-day online continuing education experience. All presenters and topics of this conference have been carefully selected to provide you with the most current and up-to-date evidence based practice (EBP) techniques in the field of speech and language pathology. The main focus of this conference will be centered around evidence based practice and how to apply EBP into our daily professional lives. We believe in order to be the best speech-language pathologists for our clients; we must always consider and continue to evaluate the evidence behind all assessments and treatments.

This is our first EBP conference and we look forward to sharing all the latest and greatest research in the field. In doing so, we hope to strengthen the bridge between the research and clinical community. Our goal is provide SLPs with the most up to date evidence to assist in day-to-day practice.

This pandemic has brought many uncertainties and difficult times and because of that, we would like to offer free registration to The Power Up Outcomes with Evidence Based Practice three-day online conference.

We want to extend our gratitude to Tatyana Elleseff and the SLPs for Evidence Based Practice Facebook group, who helped make this conference a reality. The conference is powered by VideoLearningSquad platform and the Lavi Institute.
