Sarah Jo Brown, PhD, RN-Consultant Emeritus, Evidence-Based Practice
Dr. Brown taught research courses with an evidence-based practice emphasis to undergraduate and graduate students and consulted with hospitals and home care agencies to develop evidence-based care protocols and standardized plans of care.
In addition to being an evidence-based practice consultant, Dr. Brown has worked in clinical and academic settings. She enjoys devising ways to explain research in ways that engage nurses who have the preconceived idea that research is not relevant to practice or is too difficult to read and understand.
