The Nechi Training, Research and Health Promotions Institute offers specialized training to addictions counsellors working in Aboriginal communities. Our teaching model applies theory to practice through role-playing, experiential learning and group work. For over thirty-six years, Nechi has been a leader in addictions treatment research and training. People who walk through the doors of the Nechi Training, Research and Health Promotions Institute experience a unique blending of academic curriculum and traditional Aboriginal culture; a powerful combination that ensures a greatly altered frame of reference. Nechi also incorporates traditional Aboriginal spirituality to enhance each students’ learning experience. These shared spiritual and traditional values result in a solid foundation of Aboriginal awareness that enhances self-esteem, personal growth and greater respect for individuals, families and communities. We hold the principle: addictions-free lifestyles create stronger self-awareness and healthier environments. Though the work begins here, the results are seen in our communities as we, Aboriginal people, live addictions-free lifestyles.

This online tutorial is one method that we will use at Penn State Hershey Medical Center to promote consistent use of evidence based practices in the delivery of nursing care. The tutorial will show the steps in conducting EBP.
