A quantum shift has occurred in the expectations for the provision of care when moving from the inpatient hospital setting to the outpatient ambulatory care setting. As health care systems merge with physician practice groups and individual physician practices, nurse leaders are challenged to find ways to ensure patient safety across an ever-enlarging geographic territory. This webinar will introduce innovative strategies for nursing leadership in the outpatient setting.
There is a critical need to elevate the discussion around workforce planning and development to ensure that it becomes a standing component of comprehensive strategic planning for hospitals and health systems, and not just a response to a crisis situation. The AHA's 2016 Committee on Performance Improvement (CPI) engaged hospital leaders and experts in the field to identify key workforce challenges.
Health care innovations provide new opportunities for nurse leaders to develop strategic business partnerships. Partnerships impact patients, populations and consumers across the continuum of care and increases the visibility of the organization’s vision and mission. This webinar will identify essential elements, best practices and exemplars for successful clinical practice engagement in financial business opportunities.
