The RWJF Initiative on the Future of Nursing, at the IOM held the second of three regional forums on December 3, 2009, at the Community College of Philadelphia. The forum focused on improving care delivered at the community level, with an emphasis on primary and long-term care.
Over 300 health care leaders attended the forum, and many provided testimony to the IOM committee about the important role that nurses play in delivering care in the community. Forum participants also heard remarks from Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and Washington State Secretary of Health Mary Selecky. If you missed the forum or the live webcast, the archived version is now available. Registration is required before viewing the archived webcast. For more details on the forum, we invite you to visit the Future of Nursing blog, where you can read commentary on the forum from our guest blogger, RWJF Executive Nurse Fellow Margaret Flinter.
