Nursing’s Wake-up Call: Change is Now Non-negotiable

Presented on Thursday, March 24, 2022 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM EST - ACCESS ON DEMAND RECORDING AND COMPANION REPORT

The demands of the surging pandemic and the catastrophic healthcare worker shortage left in its wake have forced healthcare organizations to turn a clinical eye inward. The ability to shift, pivot, and adapt has never been more crucial. In our webinar, Wolters Kluwer Health Learning, Research & Practice Chief Nurse Anne Dabrow Woods and UKG’s Chief Nurse Executive Nanne M. Finis will delve into a recent survey focused on better understanding nurse leader perspectives on care issues and the essential ability to change.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Senior Leaders in Nursing and Nurse Educators

In this 90-minute long facilitated webinar, we will:
  • Explore the areas where permanent changes to healthcare organizations’ workforce models were imminent and where they have been slower to adapt.
  • Discuss projected investments in staffing and technology that may drive manual processes to become more efficient and effective.
  • Discover recruitment and retention strategies healthcare organizations plan for to maintain the best nursing talent.
  • Recognize the change imperatives and innovative approaches that will support the rapid move of nursing models beyond current band-aid solutions.
